Cornerbacks Coach Leaves West Virginia

Article excerpt

West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen parted ways with cornerbacks coach Daron Roberts, the school announced in a release.

The school said Roberts "left the program to pursue other opportunities."

"I want to thank Daron for his time on staff at West Virginia," Holgorsen said in a statement. "We wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Roberts, a graduate of Harvard Law, was known as a strong recruiter.

He was criticized for the play of the team's corners this season, a group that contributed to a 120th ranked pass defense for most of the season.

The blockbuster deal announced late Sunday night is the Royals' most aggressive move yet under general manager Dayton Moore to shore up a starting rotation that has been abysmal for years. But doing so came at the cost of Myers, the minor leagues' top player last season, and a couple more top prospects.

The Rays also are getting right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who would have competed for a spot in the Royals' rotation this season, along with left-hander Mike Montgomery and third baseman Patrick Leonard. Kansas City also will receive a player to be named or cash.
