    Now that Grier is coming back for his senior year, one would hope they we will have a really good season next year.

    Do you think Dana is going to use that as his ticket to a bigger job?

    With as much turnover is if you seen this off-season, you would assume more of the same next year.

    I'd say pretty good unless he bottoms out and has a losing season.

    Contrary to what a lot of people on this board say, I think Dana likes it at WVU and he doesn't seem to me to be the type that is always looking to jump ship.

    Of course money talks, so if he gets 5-6 million a year he could leave, but I doubt he gets that type of offer.

    Every coach always looks for the next best thing with big money. If not then how do you expect him to renegotiate a contract at his present school. If offered a job I personally don't see WVU fighting to keep him. If he stays I won't mind that either.

    He will stay...contract conditions, low expectations for anything but a middle of the pack performance by Mountaineer nation, should have a better than average 2018, and not on the hot list around the country. I prefer to say stuck than stay.

    I don't see him leaving unless it is a "dream" type job. That said, I don't know enough about the man to know what that would be. However, one could assume that if the Iowa job was open, since it is his home state, that he might be interested

    Doubtful, unless he stays 20 years and has a string of Big XII championships and a couple NC shots. Then, likely.

    Don Knotts has a street named after him and a statue, what's his record?

    Maybe, I think a couple of guys named West and Hundley helped some too. About the same time as Knotts also.

    Nope, just saying that while Don Knotts became nationally known in the early '60s he may not have been identified with Morgantown; whereas West and Hundley and Rod Thorn had a direct connection to WVU and Morgantown. I think later in his career Knotts became more identified as a Morgantown native.

    If he has a good year he could definitely leverage a new HC position, imo...but if the season falls flat I could see him getting replaced here.

    Texas Tech might open up next year, not that I know their roster.

    He's a good coach, I think if he really wanted out of WVU he would have been gone last year.

    It's 100% that Holgs will staaaaay at WVU and continue to mine the gold in them thar hills of West Virginia. He can stay here and make his fortune with his genius mind for the offense. Hail, he's already got more gold than 99.9% of the folks in the dadgum state. Warez

    Oh I think he stays.
    ..He can win 9 games at WVU every year and be safe [ If WG stayed healthy it could have been ]
    ..If he can't win 9 games a year... not even safe here!
    If Dana takes a bigger offer with a higher bar and fails... he's likely back to OC

    Ole son............you kidding. Right? Holgs can make a living at WV with 6 or 7 wins per season. Shake the Pepsi Cola outta your ears. One more thing. If Dana takes a bigger job that means more money for at least 5 years. How do you hurt this man when he is sitting on a sack of seeds? By throwing him in the OC briarpatch? Really? Warez

    His son will be a senior and graduate next year. I always figured Dana wasn't moving until he graduated, especially since he's a qb with all the kids he's played with for four years. So yeah, after next year, there's no reason to stay.

    He'll win 9 games and be out.

    His son graduating also made me post this. He can use that to leverage a scholarship that he otherwise wouldnt get.

    I’m sure Dana would love to coach his kid

    You aren't even trying to compare BS career 9,9,9 in the BE with anything in the B12. Let's not be stupid about this comparison. Not even close. That doesn't even take into consideration the direction of the program after 3 years under the painter.

    WVU needs a coach that's in for the "long haul" like Don "Draw Play" Nehlen. Dana Holgrosen could be that coach or maybe not.

    He will have a good record next season against a down big 12, yet still not win it. He will then get extension and proceed to have 7 win seasons at best.

    no matter how anybody does the DH fan boy spin the football program is stuck in first gear. Maybe thats why WVU got picked 7th in the Big 12-2=10 bowl lineup sweepstakes lol. And according to the ticket folks at WVU the Mountaineers will once again loss money on their participation trophy game in Dallas. But hey ticket sales are at a whopping eleven hundred...give the clown another raise and more time to build another 7 win team.

    We don't lose money on bowls. The conference takes all bowl revenue and splits in evenly with the exception of travel costs and bonus $s for making the playoffs. Whine about something else.

    well guess what you made my point...“We receive a travel reimbursement from the league,” said WVU athletic director Shane Lyons. “Our philosophy has always been to break even with our travel expenses. But there’s a good chance our expenses will surpass our reimbursement.”

    Now stop whining about whining lol.

    Well, guess I didn't make your point: "travel expenses" does not = total bowl revenue

    You should be able to make that distinction without any help, but you're welcome anyway.

    Chances Dana’s fanboys spend 2018 making another thousand threads worrying about how a coach nobody else wants is going to “take another job” just like they have every other year he’s been here? 100%

    Dana fan boys don't have to worry about anything. Blue bloods want National championships not scrub bowl games played the day after Christmas. Next year will be more of the same only the excuses will change.
