Minnesota offensive coordinator Kirk Ciarrocca has been contacted by West Virginia for a potential assistant coaching role with the program, according to a report.
Andy Greder of the Pioneer Press reported Monday that Ciarrocca has had talks about joining Neal Brown’s staff in Morgantown. It was unclear whether or not Ciarrocca would serve as an offensive coordinator or have another role with the Mountaineers.
Brown and Ciarrocca were on the same staff at Delaware in 2005.
Ciarrocca has been with the Gophers for the past two seasons, coming with head coach P.J. Fleck from Western Michigan. Minnesota saw some growth on the offensive end of the field this season under his direction.
The Gophers averaged 28.9 points per game and 379.6 yards per game in 2018, both improvements from the previous year. Minnesota also had great production from star receiver Tyler Johnson and freshman running back Mohamed Ibrahim.
Minnesota finished the year 7-6, winning three of their last four games which included victories over Wisconsin and Georgia Tech in the Quick Lane Bowl.
