Nearly a decade after finishing his career at West Virginia, running back Quincy Wilson is coming back to his alma mater.

Head coach Dana Holgorsen announced on Twitter that Wilson would be joining the program as director of player development.

“This is a dream come true for me,” Wilson said. “I’m honored that Coach Holgorsen asked me to come back and serve as the assistant director of football operations for the program. Coming back and working at my alma mater is the right job at the right place at the right time. I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Among Wilson’s duties will be assisting with community relations programs, on-campus recruiting and with the annual high school coaches’ clinic.

Wilson finished his career at WVU (1999-2003) with 2,608 yards and 20 touchdowns in 44 games. He also had 25 receptions for 147 yards and one receiving TD. But perhaps his most memorable moment for the Mountaineers came in 2003 with this run against Miami in the Orange Bowl (an eventual 22-20 Hurricanes win):

    Quincy Wilson is a class act. Great move by the Mounties.

    That game still burns me up. After Q punked Merriweather on that run I thought it was over. Winslow made an unbelievable catch on 4th and long that just sucked the momentum out of the defense.
    Great to see Q back in Motown, Congrats!
