Marshall made waves on Monday when they fired head coach Doc Holliday after the Thundering Herd went 7-3 this past season.
Now they are making waves again trying to woo Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich to fill that void according to a report from FOX Sports.
On Wednesday while speaking to the media on his weekly Zoom pass conference Leftwich addressed the rumor.
“I’m worried about this game, I don’t even know how to answer that question,” Leftwich said with a grin. “I just heard about that myself too though, so I’ll just say that. It’s that time of the year where all these things tend to happen and we’re worried about this game on Saturday night.”
Leftwich starred at Marshall as a quarterback and turned his time in West Virginia into being a first-round draft pick in 2003 after completing 939 of 1,442 passes for 11,903 yards, 89 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. He amassed 12,090 yards of total offense during his college career and was a two time MAC offensive player of the year and MAC most valuable player.
