Probably Not the Best Way to Get the Head Coaching Job

by Corey Dean Hall

I wonder if the “head coach–in-waiting” will now have to wait a little longer:

West Virginia University is looking into an “alleged incident” believed to involve the football team’s offensive coordinator and head coach-in-waiting, Dana Holgorsen, at a Cross Lanes casino last week.

Multiple sources told the Charleston Daily Mail Holgorsen was removed from Mardi Gras Casino & Resort after 3 a.m. May 18. Holgorsen had been at a Mountaineer Athletic Club function earlier in the day in Logan before spending the evening at the casino with other university representatives.

In a statement released late Tuesday night, Michael Fragale, the assistant athletic director for communications, said, “Athletic director Oliver Luck and head coach Bill Stewart have been made aware of the alleged incident. Once they have all the facts, they will deal with it appropriately.”
