CULLOWHEE — Western Carolina head coach Mark Speir late last week announced the promotion of defensive backs coach and defensive passing game coordinator Tripp Weaver to the position of defensive coordinator as his squad prepares to enter 2020 spring drills.
Weaver, who came to WCU in March 2018 after successful stops at both The Citadel and James Madison, succeeds former defensive coordinator John Wiley, who was not retained following the 2019 season.
The Asheville native got his start in coaching as a volunteer student assistant at East Carolina.
