MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen has taken the same job on the West Virginia football coaching staff, the school said Wednesday.
West Virginia Athletic Director Oliver Luck said plans call for Holgorsen to take over as the Mountaineers' head football coach in 2012.
Holgorsen was named the Rivals.com Offensive Coordinator of the Year this season for his work with the Cowboys, who boasted the nation's top offense at 537.6 yards per game. OSU was No. 2 in passing offense, averaging 354.7 yards per game, and No. 3 in scoring offense, putting up 44.9 points per game.
Holgorsen also spent time as offensive coordinator with Houston and Texas Tech.
Current Mountaineers head Coach Bill Stewart will stay with WVU after the 2011 season in an administrative role, Luck said.
Holgorsen will start at West Virginia after the Dec. 28 game against North Carolina State in the Champs Sports Bowl.
