Dana Holgorsen has had a pretty great year at West Virginia, leading the Mountaineers to legitimate College Football Playoff and Big 12 championship contention. WVU ultimately ended up falling short of those marks, losing to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State, but the program still has a lot to be proud of.

Will Holgorsen continue to lead the West Virginia program deep into the future?

Other schools reportedly have interest in prying him away from Morgantown, West Virginia.

The West Virginia head coach is reportedly "on the radar" of Louisville, Colorado and Texas Tech.

From Metro News:

Texas Tech officials reportedly are targeting West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen as a replacement for Kliff Kingsbury, who was fired Sunday after six seasons.

Sources at West Virginia did not confirm Holgorsen’s mutual interest in the Red Raiders’ job, especially considering he’s also on the radar for vacancies at Colorado and Louisville.

Holgorsen would owe the university $2.5 million if he leaves for another job before Dec. 31, and $1 million thereafter.

It would be surprising if Holgorsen left West Virginia for one of those jobs, though it's possible the Mountaineers' head coach could be ready for a change.

Stay tuned.
