MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen has been hired for the same position at West Virginia next season, and the Mountaineers plan to make him head coach in 2012.
The deal announced Wednesday will have Holgorsen replace Jeff Mullen as offensive coordinator and become "head coach in waiting'' in 2011. He will replace head coach Bill Stewart for the 2012 season. The university says Stewart will take an administrative role after the 2011 season.
WVU says Holgorsen will be paid $800,000 in 2011 and that will increase to $1.4 million, plus incentives, in 2012.
West Virginia has gone 28-11 in three seasons under Stewart, whose six-year contract runs through 2014.
