Dana Holgorsen’s WVU status in question?


West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen has been with the team for five seasons now. Since the team joined the Big 12 in 2012, things certainly haven’t gone their was as they team has finished 7-5 in three of the four seasons and lost their two previous bowl games.

Holgorsen’s group lost to Kansas State last Saturday when they had a shot at winning 8 games for the first time since 2011, when the team won the Big East and the Orange Bowl. According to the Charleston Gazette-Mail, it doesn’t seem like any decision has been made on Holgorsen’s future in Morgantown.

The indecisiveness came after the Mountaineers failed to convert on a fourth-and-one that would have kept a drive to tie or win the game alive. Holgorsen decided to let quarterback Skyler Howard run the ball instead of giving it to running back Wendell Smallwood.

It would have made things easier for athletic director Shane Lyons. The site reported that he had no comment when asked reached on Monday, so it certainly looks like things could be getting sticky in Morgantown very soon.
