Dana Holgorsen to WVU rumors running rampant. I'm very, very intrigued.
Been successful everywhere he's been as an OC in Houston, TT, and now in Ok. State.
Holgorsen in as OC and Head Coach In Waiting! Taking over in 2012!
Does it say anything that WVU started pursuing him once they found out he was the leading candidate at Pitt?
Thought something was up when I read this morning that Stewart might be out and UK was looking at David Lockwood as a DB coach.
Should make WVU's offense a lot more exciting. What's surprising to me is that Jeff Mullen is a leading candidate for Kent State's open head coaching job.
I've always compared Bill Stewart to Tubby Smith at Kentucky. A good family man who you would love for your child to play for, but there is somebody who could do a better job. However, with Tubby there was still a section of the fanbase who supported him even though the program was going downhill. That applies to Stewart, especially since he is from West Virginia.
The only thing I can say is that I hope Dana Holgersen hits the ground running in Morgantown and starts winning and winning big. If he doesn't, that section of the fanbase will voice their frustrations the same way UK did with Gillispie and WVU could be looking for a new coach again, with a lot higher expectations heaped onto Oliver Luck.
I wouldn't necessarily give him the title "offensive genius", although the numbers do speak for themselves. He's been made into what he is by Mike Leach (who WVU could have had as well), and before Mike Leach by Hal Mumme.
Its a great day to be a Mountaineer fan!! Nothing against Bill Stewart,but I have been wanting this day to come for awhile now.With DH as our OC this year and Head Coach in 2012 WVU's ofense will be back to normal and putting up alot of points in games.Plus with our great defensive head coach Casteel,this team has the opurtunity to look very dangerous in the not to distant future.
I can spell,I just can't type!!
You guys have to be happy with the Pitt hire too. Heywood to Oakland has the UC fans scratching our heads.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
