MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia has hired former longtime Penn State assistant coach Tom Bradley, who was interim head coach for the Nittany Lions after Joe Paterno was fired in 2011 during the Jerry Sandusky child sexual-abuse scandal.
Mountaineers coach Dana Holgorsen says Bradley's defensive coaching position will be designated later. Bradley was defensive coordinator for Penn State from 2000-11, and became interim coach for the final four games of the 2011 season.
Bradley played at Penn State, started coaching there in 1979 and never went anywhere else. In 2000, he was promoted to defensive coordinator after Sandusky retired.
After Bill O'Brien took over as head coach at Penn State, Bradley was not retained. He has been working as an analyst for CBS Sports Network and on radio for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
