Dana Holgorsen, WVU no longer in contract talks


One of the discussions in the Big 12 near the end of the season was that the West Virginia Mountaineers might not be giving head coach Dana Holgorsen an extension. After four straight seasons of no more than 8 wins, it looks like his time could be coming to a close.

According to multiple reports, the Mountaineers are no longer in contract negotiations with Holgorsen. The news came on Saturday as the team is looking to focus on the 2016 season.

There will be no change in Dana’s contract at this time,” WVU athletic director Shane Lyons told the Charleston Gazette-Mail. “We’ll now turn our attention to the 2016 season and hope to continue the momentum from the Cactus Bowl win and successful signing day.”

It looks like Holgorsen has got to have a strong 2016 season with the Mountaineers if he wants to keep his job into the future. Holgorsen’s contract is up in 2017 and is owned $2.9 million in both years, but he would be owed the full amount if he is fired.

He has spent the last five years with the Mountaineers and has a record of 36-28 with four bowl appearances and a record of 2-2. It is his only head coaching job so far.
