Andrew Jackson added to WVU defensive staff

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Neal Brown has filled the vacancy on his coaching staff created by the departure of co-defensive coordinator Jahmile Addae to Georgia. Andrew Jackson is the newest Mountaineer defensive assistant coach. Brown will later announce specific staff assignments.

Jackson was the defensive line coach and defensive recruiting coordinator at Old Dominion this past season. He spent the previous season on staff for Morgantown native Curt Cignetti at James Madison, coaching the defensive tackles.

“I would like to welcome Andrew to the Mountaineer Football family,” Brown said. “He comes highly recommended and brings good defensive experience with him. He already has recruiting experience in areas within our footprint and has a track record for being an outstanding teacher.”

“Coach Brown is building a strong, family-oriented program at West Virginia, and I am excited to become a part of its upward climb,” Jackson said. “The program has a rich tradition and history and the fan base is very passionate. I have a lot of respect for the people in this state, and I am excited to work with the players and coaches. I can’t wait to get started.”

Jackson has also been an assistant coach at Mississippi State (2018/defensive quality control), Fordham (2017/defensive line), Penn State (2015-2016/graduate assistant), and Stony Brook (2013-2014/GA & defensive line).

Jackson was a three-year captain and three-year starter for LIU Post.
