Dana Holgorsen enters the picture with a resume that boasts the #1 ranked offense in the nation at Oklahoma State in 2010. Jeff Casteel remains in the picture with a resume that boasts the #3 ranked defense in the nation.
Unfortunately for the Mountaineers, both those numbers might be hard to replicate, as we lose key starters across both sides of the line of scrimmage. Noel Devine, Jock Sanders, Eric Jobe, Scooter Berry, Chris Nield, JT Thomas, Anthony Leonard, Brandon Hogan, Sidney Glover, and Gregg Pugnetti are all regular starters that depart after the Champs Sports Bowl. Robert Sands may leave for the NFL Draft, as well.
Still, expectations will be high, as that's almost guaranteed after making a monumental coaching change after a 9-3 season. So, riddle me this: how many wins in 2011 -- Bill Stewart's last and Dana Holgorsen's first?
