Dana Holgorsen to WVU
How about this guy? I know. I know. He's a Fabio/Phil Collins/Bobcat Goldthwait look-a-like, but he's also an offensive genius. He's been putting up huge numbers as Texas Tech's and Oklahoma State's offensive coordinator for the past seven or eight seasons.
Reports say he's going to spend one year as our new offensive coordinator, replacing the much beleaguered Jeff Mullen. Now here's where it gets interesting... he's also going to be our Head Coach in Waiting. That means he'll be replacing Bill Stewart as Head Coach in 2012.
At this point nothing has been confirmed by WVU or Oklahoma State. I expect it will be soon, however. There are far too many reports on this information. The WVU Athletic Department will make an announcement within the next 24 hours and save Mountaineer Nation from certain meltdown.
Welcome aboard, Bobcat... er, uh... Dana. We're looking forward to your first BCS Bowl.
