    I really liked him as a coach but the people in West Virginia are tough in every coach we get if they don’t win immediately so I understand why he did it. I hope we can get someone the state can get behind and good luck Dana.

    It was a good 8 years. Would have liked a few more bowl wins. He is truly a great offensive mind. Just hate the way he left. Respect him a little less now because of that. I truly hope that Shane Lyons has been talking to some worthy candidates for his replacement.

    Good luck with the bowl wins part. Guess they knew they wouldn’t have to pay that out.

    Good bye, Holgerson….hope WVU can get a better coaching staff so we don’t have teams that blow a lead or show up in the 2nd half.

    I think he had plans to leave or the university was going to fire him. There was talk of he didn’t win the bowl game he was gone.

    Goodbye!! I’m all on board with bringing Rich Rod back.

    I’m glad they gave him incentives to win bowl games because he has a problem with that, and hiring coordinators that know what they are doing, and being prepared each and every week ! ( like working hard every day, not just on occasion ) not a fan !

    I appreciate the time spent here. He was young and brought life to the university and the state. He was good coach but an even better offensive coordinator. I didn’t approve of his drinking to the point he was totally drunk and his behavior in front of his team. He took us to another level. I wish him well.
