Or until a higher level school decides they want a new coach.
If WVU couldn't keep Rich Rodriguez, a West Virginia native, as head coach, I don't see how they will be able to keep Holgorsen. Then again, you could say the same for Nehlen, who had the opportunity to leave for Wisconsin (which ultimately went to Barry Alvarez). I don't see Holgorsen having that loyalty, and if a Texas school opens and offers to get him off "The Island", it might happen.
Thats the thing I don't get. When Holgorsen was hired people complained he had no roots here. But he is building a house out in Cheat Lake somewhere (rumor) and people site Rich leaving as proof. But Dandy Don who also had no ties to this state stayed for 20+ years without as much as a whisper of him leaving (at least while I've been paying attention).
Which is Holgorsen? I don't know, but I always ask the question is it better to stick around and try to become the Bear Bryant of the school or is it better to go to where Bear Bryant coached and be one of many? I THINK
Holgorsen is a different cat than Rich Rod, I don't THINK
Holgorsen would leave just for a "higher prestige" job, for him it would have to make sense.
