Most coaches entering their fourth years with power conference programs have either established themselves or need a big season to ensure that they get a chance for year five. Neither seems to be the case for West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen. Holgorsen’s tenure at West Virginia has been extremely up-and-down, coming to a head with last year’s 4-8 campaign. He may very well need a winning season this fall to save his job, but athletic director Oliver Luck does not seem all that high on WVU’s chances to improve on its record from last year.
In a segment on a local television program, Luck discussed many topics related to West Virginia athletics, including the outlook for the football team in 2014, and while he expects the team to improve, because of a difficult schedule, he doesn’t seem to have very high expectations in terms of final record.
Luck did go on to compliment the coaching staff, especially new addition Tom Bradley, but if the team does go 4-8 for a second straight year, as he admits is possible, it may be tough to keep Holgorsen and company around.
