West Virginia kicker Josh Lambert leaves team


West Virginia Mountaineers head coach Dana Holgorsen has confirmed placekicker Josh Lambert is no longer a member of the program. There was no reason given for Lambert’s departure from the Mountaineers.

“He’s had a great career, he has his degree,” said Holgorsen on Tuesday afternoon. “We wish him the best moving forward.

I won’t comment on it other than that.”

This season, Lambert has played in just one game after starting the year with a three-game suspension for an undisclosed violation of Big 12 eligibility rules. Lambert also missed spring practice.

In his limited game action, Lambert made one-of-two field goal attempts.

Just two years ago, Lambert was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award. In every season in Morgantown, Lambert led the team in scoring. He finishes his career at West Virginia second in school history in made field goals.

The Mountaineers return to action this weekend against Texas Tech on the road.
