West Virginia sources are reporting that WVU offensive line and assistant head coach Rick Trickett has been contacted by Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden to come direct the Seminoles' front line, although no decision has been made on the firing of present FSU line boss Mark McHale. Rodriguez, too, has been contacted by Bowden about Trickett's willingness and ability to take over at FSU.
"They're trying to recruit him to come there. Coach Bowden's contacted me. I think it's going to be a personal decision on what he decides to do," Rodriguez said. "I think we've come with what I think is a pretty good package for him. We want him to stay because he's done an outstanding job for us," said Rodriguez.
Trickett is in his second tour of duty with West Virginia football. He coached the Mountaineer offensive line from 1976-77 and the WVU defensive line from 1978-79. He returned with Rodriguez in 2001 and has remained in his present job.
