Dana Holgorsen Reportedly Headed to West Virginia as Coach-In-Waiting
According to reports, Holgorsen will be West Virginia's offensive coordinator and coach-in-waiting in 2011 before taking over for Bill Stewart in 2012. Holgorsen will reportedly get a six-year deal, with a term of five years as head coach.
The rest of the West Virginia staff will be retained in 2011, according to reports, while current coordinator Jeff Mullen is in limbo, waiting to hear whether he gets the head coaching job at Kent State.
In his first season with the Cowboys, Holgorsen led the nation's top-ranked offense with 538 yards per game. West Virginia, meanwhile, finished No. 64 with 377 yards per game. The Mountaineers finished this season 9-3 (5-2) and will be playing N.C. State in the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 28.
