Coach Neal Brown will get another chance at West Virginia after finishing with his best regular-season record despite being mired in the program’s worst stretch in four decades.

West Virginia athletic director Wren Baker said Friday that Brown will return in 2024, putting to rest any speculation on the fate of the fifth-year coach, whose job security has been questioned by fans at various points over the past two seasons.

“I was very pleased with the way that the team performed and the way our coaches and staff performed,” Baker said on West Virginia network MetroNews. “I thought they did a really good job.

“I’ve never said anything to speculate differently. I know other people speculate,” Baker said. “But coach Brown is going to be our football coach and we’re excited about what the future holds and excited about building on what was a really good year.”
