Matt Welch hired as West Virginia beat writer

Please join me and the staff at in welcoming Matt Welch, formerly of the Times West Virginian in Fairmont, W.Va., as our first full-time beat writer covering West Virginia University athletics and the Big 12 Conference.

As with the hiring earlier this week of Audrey Snyder to cover Penn State, we're going to offer news, views, videos, photos, podcasts and a whole lot more from this major school that's right down I-79 and that has so many alumni in the immediate vicinity. We look forward to seeing the relationship blossom between those who follow the Mountaineers and everything that Matt and our staff will offer.

Click Matt's name up there for more about him. He'll introduce himself to you in a personal piece tomorrow. And as always, I'll be available in comments for any questions.

Also, tomorrow -- and yes, I've saved this for last -- I'll make our Pitt presentation.
