    Dana Holgorsen named West Viriginia coach

    Yahoo Sports

    Seems like the West Viriginia football program is in an interesting place right now. I can't believe that a head coach would ask reporters to gather dirt on one of the assistants.

    Re: Dana Holgorsen named West Viriginia coach

    Bill Stewart is a classless pile of ****. Assuming the players and remaining staff are willing to play for Holgerson, this is probably what they should have done in the first place.

    I thought the coach-in-waiting to take over @ the end of Stewart's contract would work out well because I think everyone knew (Stewart included) that he wouldn't get the contract renewed next year so he was a lame duck any way you sliced it. But he still tried to sabotage the next guy. Gotta slice that cancer off before it spread.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    What a schit show. But is anyone surprised it came to this? Seemed like a tense situation when Holgerson cam over in this role from OSU anyway.

    Between this and Muschamp, I'd have to think we're seeing the end of the "coach-in-waiting" thing, unless there are really strong ties between the coach in waiting and the university, and the current coach has set his own time table.

    Ya I would assume that would be over. I cant think of any program where there would be a next in line at this point.

    JoPa is same deal as Bobby Bowden and Jimbo Fisher which turned out to be an awkward situation at Florida St since Bobby stayed too long. Penn St would be wise not to name a coach in waiting.

    For those of you that care about this sort of thing....Holgorsen is an Iowa native (Mt. Pleasant) and played at Iowa Wesleyan.

    Holgorson gets a $2MM bonus because he gets the top job early.

    Stewart got the job when Rich Rod left for Michigan and Stewart beat OU in the bowl game as the stand in head coach. WVU gave him the job because he beat OU. The AD was not a fan of Stewart.

    The WVU fans are embarrassed that this all happened..

    That seemed like a reactionary move at the time. Given that WVU had been inches from playing for a National Title in '07, they could have brought in a better coach than Bill Stewart.

    For those of you that care about this sort of thing....Holgorsen is an Iowa native (Mt. Pleasant) and played at Iowa Wesleyan.
    I noticed he made a reference to his Iowan upbringing in his press conference yesterday.

    Re: Dana Holgorsen named West Viriginia coach

    Hmmmmm let's see, Stewart wasn't ready to leave his post so WV tells him not only are you done after next season but we're bringing in your replacement this year and you're going to run his offense and he's going to bring in some coaches with him. Sounds like a situation ripe for disaster. I wonder how awkward or crazy things would have got during the season...especially if WV underachieved.

    The coach in waiting thing needs to go. The only way it will work is if it is for one year and the head coach wants to leave/retire and the new guy is on staff already and they have a solid relationship
