Alcorn set to hire former West Virginia great Pat White, promotes Stancheck

At one time, Pat White and Ryan Stancheck were a part of one of the most dynamic offenses in college football at West Virginia. Now, Alcorn State is set to bring them back together.

After the Braves announced their promotion of Stancheck to offensive coordinator, a source confirmed to WJTV 12 that they are set to hire White as the program's new quarterbacks coach. The Natchez Democrat first reported the White news. White also tweeted a picture of the Alcorn State seal on Monday. 

White finished his playing career as one of the most decorated Mountaineers in program history. The former quarterback totaled 10,529 yards and 103 touchdowns over four seasons. He also started in four bowl victories for West Virginia.

Stancheck was White's teammate as an offensive lineman. He has been with Alcorn for four years. Last season, he became the run game coordinator after spending three years as the offensive line coach. The Braves led the FCS in yards per carry (6.42) and ranked in the top 10 in the nation in rushing offense (237.4).
