ESPN sources: Kansas offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey is expected to be named the next head coach at Troy. Football Scoop first reported the move. Lindsey joined the Kansas staff last month after spending the last two seasons as Auburn's offensive coordinator. He returns to his native Alabama, where he began his career as a longtime high school coach. Troy also considered Tulane offensive coordinator Will Hall, Louisiana-Lafayette defensive coordinator Ron Roberts and Ole Miss linebackers coach Jon Sumrall for the job.

West Virginia hires Troy's Brown as new coach

Neal Brown, who is one of only six FBS coaches with 10 victories in each of the past three seasons, has been hired as the new football coach at West Virginia.

West Virginia is hiring Troy's Neal Brown as its next coach, sources tell ESPN's Mark Schlabach. Yahoo first reported the impending hire. Brown emerged as the leading candidate for WVU even before Dana Holgorsen officially left for Houston, sources said. He spoke to WVU on Thursday. Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell and West Virginia defensive coordinator Tony Gibson also were interviewed for the job. Brown amazingly had been passed over for several Power 5 opportunities, so this is a real steal for WVU late in the cycle.

Interesting rumblings today on Kansas State. I've heard various candidate combinations, all with North Dakota State's Chris Klieman, most with Memphis' Mike Norvell, some with Oregon defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt. Troy's Neal Brown, I'm told, also in consideration. Brown is unique because he followed a veteran coach (Larry Blakeney) and took over a Troy program that had been struggling a bit, like Kansas State is now. He's 30-8 since 2016.
