After a year-long stint with Cal, Jake Spavital is on the move yet again.
The former Texas A&M offensive coordinator will assume the same position at West Virginia next season, according to FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman.
Spavital led the Golden Bears to the No. 22 scoring offense this season nationally, but Cal finished with a 5-7 (3-6 Pac-12) record. Head coach Sonny Dykes was fired earlier this month, and former Wisconsin defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox will take over in Berkeley, Calif.
Texas A&M and Spavital parted ways following the 2015 season, and he was replaced by former UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone.
“I want to thank Jake for his time here and for his important role in our program,” Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said in the statement last January. “He is a bright, young coach with a tremendous future in coaching and we wish him all of the best in his career.”
The Aggies finished with the nation’s No. 34 scoring offense in 2016, averaging 34.8 points per game.
Spavital was with Texas A&M from 2013-15, serving as the Aggies’ quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator. With the Mountaineers, he will inherit former Florida starting quarterback Will Grier, who is expected to be eligible in 2017 after sitting out the 2016 season because of his transfer.
