Written by Jenn Menendez on .

Former star running back Quincy Wilson was added to Dana Holgorsen’s football staff today.

Wilson, according to a release, will assist the director of football operations with the day to day activities of the football program.

“I am thrilled to welcome back Quincy Wilson to Mountaineer football,” Holgorsen said in a statement. “As a native West Virginian, a former student-athlete and leader in his community, there is no better person to serve in our new player development position. Quincy’s role will be pivotal in helping mentor and develop our players off the field.”

Wilson played for the Mountaineers for four season from 2000-2003, amassing 2,608 career rushing yards, and finishing as an Associated Press third team All-American.

"This is a dream come true for me,” said Wilson. “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.”

An Atlanta Falcons draft pick in 2004, Wilson played for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2004-08.

He arrives at WVU from a sales manager position for State Industrial in Cleveland, Ohio.
