Dana Holgorsen Hired By West Virginia ... Already?

Mitch Vingle of the West Virginia Gazette has announced that West Virginia University has already hired Dana Holgorsen, the Oklahoma State assistant who is rumored to be on Oliver Luck's radar to replace current offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen.

Vingle writes:

According to a source that asked to remain anonymous, Holgorsen will take over as the Mountaineer offensive coordinator next season and then replace Stewart as head coach in 2012-13.

Stewart has agreed to stay on next season.

According to the source, WVU defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel and the entire defensive staff will be retained. Current Mountaineer offensive coordinator Jeff Mullen is apparently out whether he lands the open Kent State head coaching job or not.

Right now there have been no official announcements from Oliver Luck, Bill Stewart, Dana Holgorsen or anyone affiliated with West Virginia University or Oklahoma State University. While Vingle cited "unnamed sources," we cannot verify the accuracy of their statements. Currently this can only be considered a rumor, because most major media outlets have differing explanations of the current coaching situation.
