Breaking: Galloway to leave WVU for Louisville

According to Mike Casazza of the Charleston Gazette WVU offensive assistant Lonnie Galloway is leaving WVU to become the next offensive coordinator at Louisville.

Galloway was recently offered a contract extension although WVU AD Shane Lyons stated assistants would remain on year to year contracts. Galloway’s extension secured him through the 2017 season and increased his salary to $375,000 per season.

Galloway first came to WVU in 2008 where he served as the wide receivers coach. After leaving WVU in 2010 Galloway returned in 2013 to take the same position.

Galloway becomes the second coach to leave the program in the last two days. Defensive assistant Anthony Leonard left for IUP just two days ago. Besides Leonard, he becomes the fourth assistant coach to leave since the end of the 2015 season joining Joe DeForest, Damon Cogdell, and Brian Mitchell.
