WVU football: Dana Holgorsen likely to shake up coaching staff

USA TODAY Sports

Dana Holgorsen just wrapped up his second season as West Virginia's head coach.

Following a 7-6 season and a disappointing loss to Syracuse in the Pinstripe Bowl, West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen is likely to make some coaching changes in the coming weeks. According to a post by Mike Casazza, Holgorsen has revealed very little about his plans.

At the very least, the Mountaineers are in need of a new cornerbacks coach. Holgorsen relieved Daron Roberts of that post in early December, after West Virginia allowed more passing yards and touchdowns than any other team in the Big 12. Rumors pointed to a few replacement candidates, but Casazza admits that these were all unconfirmed.

In addition to a new cornerbacks coach, Holgorsen is expected to make further changes. All that fans and reporters can do is speculate at this point. Other defensive alterations seem most likely, since West Virginia's defense gave up an average of 38.1 points per game this season. Holgorsen will attend the coaching convention, which begins on Monday in Nashville.
