One year after playing his last game as a Mountaineer, Tyler Urban will return to WVU and join Dana Holgorsen’s coaching staff as an offensive graduate assistant and for quality control. Profootball Scoop originally reported the move, and confirmed to us by Vernon Bailey at WVSports.com
Urban went undrafted in last year’s NFL Draft, but was quickly signed by the Tampa Bay Bucs. The team quietly let him go. He then signed with the New England Patriots before getting cut at the end of last August.
Urban is the fourth addition to the Mountaineer coaching staff in the past week, including the return of Lonnie Galloway and Tony Gibson along with the addition of Brian Mitchell, who was the former defensive coordinator at East Carolina.
