First Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen was a leading candidate for the open position at Pittsburgh, then there were reports of discussions with West Virginia. Engaged in discussions with bitter rivals, and only one head coaching position available, there was little clarity to Holgorsen's situation. But according to the most recent reports from Morgantown, Bill Stewart does not have to worry about his coaching for his job like we may have thought.
The Charleston Gazette is reporting Tuesday that Holgorsen will join the Mountaineers staff as offensive coordinator in 2011, and then take over Stewart's position as head coach heading into the 2012 season. According to the report, current offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen, a candidate for the Kent State head coaching position, will be out whether he lands the job or not. Defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel and the entire defensive staff will be retained.
