Houston Football: Dana Holgorsen Signs Record-Setting Contract


Dana Holgorsen

The Houston football program has made a major splash in the coaching world. On Tuesday, January 1, it was reported that the Cougars have hired head coach Dana Holgorsen away from the West Virginia Mountaineers. Holgorsen has been with West Virginia since 2011.

The deal with Houston is reportedly a record-setting deal.

According to a report from SB Nation, which first reported the news, Holgorsen is going to be the highest paid Group of Five coach in the history of college football.

The report reads:

Holgorsen and UH have an agreement in place on a five-year, $20 million deal that appears to make Holgorsen the highest-paid coach at any non-power conference school ever.

As for the timing of the move, his contract in Morgantown called for him to pay WVU $2.5 million if he left before New Year’s Day 2019.

That amount was slated to go down to $1 million at midnight on the first day of the year, causing Houston to wait before moving to officially hire him.

Holgorsen holds an overall coaching record of 61-41, with one Big East championship.
