Report: Bishop McCort grad joining WVU staff

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Tom Bradley has been working as an analyst for a Pittsburgh radio station this week during the NFL Scouting Combine.

It appears the former Bishop McCort High School graduate soon will be putting that work behind him and returning to coaching.

Bradley, a former Penn State player and long-time assistant under coach Joe Paterno, has agreed to join the West Virginia coaching staff, according to MetroNews.com.

An official announcement is expected to come early next week, although it is unclear which position Bradley will coach. West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen’s Mountaineers open spring practice March 2.

Bradley, 57, spent 33 seasons as an assistant coach under Paterno and finished up with a four-game stint as interim head coach of the Nittany Lions after Paterno was fired in November 2011 in wake of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse allegations.

Bradley, who replaced Sandusky as defensive coordinator in 2000 after he retired, was not retained when former coach Bill O’Brien was hired as Paterno’s full-time replacement in January 2012. 

Bradley did not respond to phone calls or text messages seeking comment.
