MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia has rehired a pair of former longtime assistant football coaches, adding Jeff Casteel as a defensive analyst and Bill Legg as the assistant to coach Neal Brown.

Brown announced the hirings Friday.

Legg served as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Mercer last season. At West Virginia he was the interior offensive line coach from 1995 to 1999 and the offensive coordinator in his final season under Hall of Fame coach Don Nehlen.

Among his other stints, Legg was the offensive coordinator at Marshall from 2010-17 and coached tight ends and was the recruiting coordinator for the Thundering Herd from 2001-02.

Both Casteel and Legg are West Virginia natives. Casteel is from Paden City, and Legg is from Poca.
