Chip West is officially in the fold at Wake Forest, and the ACC veteran brings 9 seasons of conference experience.

West has over 25 years of college coaching experience and spent the past 3 seasons as the cornerbacks coach at Syracuse. During his time in Upstate New York, every starting cornerback for the Orange earned All-ACC honors and he mentioned a pair of Freshman All-Americans and one NFL Draftee.

It’s a reunion of sorts for West, as he has previous working experience with head coach Dave Clawson at Fordham (2003) and defensive coordinator Brad Lambert at Charlotte (2018) and Marshall (2019).

Prior to his time at Syracuse, West spent the 2019 season at Marshall, and was the co-defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach at Charlotte in 2018 and held the same positions at Howard University in 2017. From 2010-15, West worked as the cornerbacks coach at Virginia.
