According to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, Troy University is “expected” to name Kentucky co-defensive coordinator Jon Sumrall as their next head coach. This comes after Chip Lindsey was fired after three seasons.
Why is this important to WVU? Jordan Lesley, WVU’s defensive coordinator, was named as a potential replacement and a “finalist” for the Trojans job. Now that the position has been filled, it appears as if Lesley will remain with the Mountaineers barring something unforeseen.
Lesley has been with WVU since 2019, and has held the defensive coordinator role since 2020. He split the position with Jahmile Addae in 2020 before assuming the primary role in 2021.
