Houston Officially Announces Dana Holgorsen As Its Head Football Coach


After a day-plus of fitful waiting, West Virginia’s head coaching position is officially open.

Former coach Dana Holgorsen has notified the school of his intention to exercise the buyout option in his contract, and Houston has officially announced Holgorsen as its head coach.

 

This clears the path for the next steps in West Virginia’s hiring process. A press conference is anticipated to be announced at WVU soon, although it likely won’t be to announce a new head coach. Instead, it would be to take questions about the new coaching search and the potential interview and hiring process.

Multiple sources told BlueGoldNews.com that there will not be a search consultant employed. Director of Athletics Shane Lyons and University president E. Gordon Gee are the two primary figures that will be involved in finding the 34th coach in Mountaineer football history.

Holgorsen was second all-time at WVU in both wins (61) and losses (41), trailing Don Nehlen (149-93) in both categories. Holgorsen’s winning percentage of 59.8 percent is 16th on West Virginia’s all-time list. Among the 12 coaches that were at the helm for at least four seasons, that percentage ranks eighth.

    At least the drama was kept to a minimum.An amicable divorce it seems.

    I agree. Certainly a breath of fresh air after suffering through the RR “departure.”

    I think that this is a “win – win” for DH and WVU. I like DH but he had grown stale  on me. He will do well there and the pressure won’t be quite as intense and we get some new blood infused into the program. It’s a great time to be a Mountaineer !

    Agreed it was win win. Time for everyone to move on
