Just a short eleven years ago, Mountaineer nation said goodbye to one of the most beloved Mountaineers of all-time and possibly the best player to ever put on a West Virginia uniform, Pat White. White was the first quarterback in college football to win all four bowl games throughout his career and guided the Mountaineers to a 34-8 record over that span.
Aside from that, he broke multiple school and national records including the most rushing yards accumulated by a quarterback in college football with 4,480 total rushing yards. He is regarded as one of college football’s greats and one of the best dual threat quarterbacks in the history of the sport at the collegiate level.
After a brief stint in the NFL with the Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins, a career that was shortened due to injuries, his focus now turns to coaching. White has been officially named as the quarterbacks coach at Alcorn State, who is a member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC).
