In a letter posted to the Dominion Post, former head coach Dana Holgorsen has bid farewell to the Mountaineers.

After eight seasons in Morgantown, I am beginning a new chapter in my coaching career back in Houston. Leaving the great State of West Virginia is difficult. West Virginia is a special place. The passion and pride that West Virginians have for their state and for the flagship University is remarkable and helped elevate our l program.

I want to thank Mountaineer Nation for the incredible support and for welcoming my family and I into your family. I want to thank the faculty, staff and students who were so instrumental in helping our players achieve well-beyond their dreams. I want to thank our coaches and support staff for their commitment to excellence. Most importantly, I want to thank the hundreds of young men who chose to earn a WVU degree and wear the blue and gold uniform that represents all of those who have come before and who are still yet to come.

I will be cheering on the Mountaineers from afar and I have no doubt greater things lie ahead for West Virginia University.

Once a Mountaineer, Always a Mountaineer

Dana Holgorsen

Goodbyes can be hard but now it is time for everyone to move on. Good luck in Houston coach. On to Neal Brown and the 2019 Mountaineer season.

Let’s Go!
