Bill Stewart Out As Head Coach At WVU In 2012
Colin Dunlap of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Sportsradio 93-7 The FAN joined Seibel and Starkey today to break the news that Oklahoma St. Offensive Coordinator Dana Holgorsen has been hired at WVU as the offensive coordinator, and will take over as the head coach in 2012, at which point Bill Stewart will be reassigned in the athletic department.
Holgorsen, who was thought to be the leading candidate for the Pitt head coaching vacancy as of two days ago, was brought in to replace Stewart, and according to Dunlap, may have been a candidate to replace Stewart as early as October after WVU lost to Connecticut.
Pitt meanwhile is still left searching for a head coach to replace Dave Wannstedt.
