Tales from the Tailgates: WVU Coaches' Families


In the shadow of Milan Puskar Stadium, a group of families get together before every West Virginia home football game to tailgate and to get ready for the action on the field.

These families share a common bond and it is unlike any of the other tailgates in the lots. Those coaches on the field for the Mountaineers? They are the husbands, fathers, brothers and sons of the people who make up this gathering.

With the coaches preparing to do their job, these families join the rest of the fans in enjoying the atmosphere of a game in Morgantown. The staff on the WVU football team works an around the clock job, and it is something each family has to adapt to.

About two hours before kickoff, they get one final opportunity to see the coaches as they walk the Mountaineer Mantrip on their way into the stadium.

See their own story of what it's like to have a coach in the family and what they think of the tailgating scene in Morgantown.
