Simple question to AD Oliver Luck


Dear Mr. Luck,

 

I don't know how many times a day you get asked this series of questions, but I feel that I have to ask them.

 

It is obvious that you did not care for the current status of the football program and you wanted to make a change, so you brought on Dana Holgerson.

Why, Mr. Luck, when given the opportunity did you not fire Head Coach Bill Stewart? You have stated previously you were not happy with the direction of the program or satisfied with the record for the 2010 campaign.  As an alumnus, you are more than aware of the situation in January 2008 how and when Bill Stewart was hired.  You are more than aware that some significant donors to the athletic programs were very very vocal with their displeasure in this hiring.

So please Mr. Luck, explain to me why you didn't reach out to these wealthy donors and ask them to kick in the money to buy out the remainder of Bill Stewart's contract?  Is there language in the contract that forbids that?  Is there some other reasons that this can not happen?

I ask this because of the current situation surrounding the WVU football program.  I'm just a simple man, but had you done this in the first place, most of this could have been avoided.  You would have upset Bill Stewart and his fans (I admit I have been one, but have also lately been re-evaluating my thoughts on him), but you could have changed the course of the football program, in the direction you want to take it. 

Thank you for your time Mr. Luck.  I'll write to you again soon.  The next round of questioning will be about how you are the A.D., and alum and can't get your son to transfer from Stanford to WVU to finish his college career. 

Sincerely,

BurghMountaineer
