Former Penn State and Minnesota OC Kirk Ciarrocca has landed a new job

Kirk Ciarrocca spent last season at Penn State as James Franklin's offensive coordinator, but parted ways with the program when Franklin brought Mike Yurchich to Happy Valley as the team's offensive coordinator.

Now, Ciaroccaa has landed on his feet as a member of Neal Brown's staff at West Virginia.

The school announced the addition of the veteran offensive coordinator today, noting that Ciarrocca will serve as an offensive analyst.

"I have known Kirk for many years, having worked together on the staff at Delaware. He brings years of successful experience and will be a valuable member of our football program," Brown shared of the addition.

Prior to his one season at Penn State, Ciarrocca worked as PJ Fleck's offensive coordinator and helped engineer impressive turnarounds, first at Western Michigan and then at Minnesota.

The success of the 2019 season earned Ciarrocca a nomination for the Broyles Award as the Gophers posted a 10-win regular season and had one of the highest scoring offenses in school history.

In addition to Penn State, Minnesota, and WMU, Ciarrocca has also previously held coordinator roles at Rutgers, Delaware, and Western Connecticut State.

Back in mid-February we shared Ciarrocca's name among one of a handful of the top available coaches that had yet to land new roles. Now he's off the board and his experience as a veteran play caller will certainly be a huge asset to Neal Brown and the Mountaineer offensive staff.
