WVU investigating Holgorsen incident

West Virginia offensive coordinator and head-coach-in-waiting Dana Holgorsen was escorted out of a casino last week after 3 a.m., according to the Charleston Daily Mail. Mountaineers officials say they are investigating what happened.

"Athletic director Oliver Luck and head coach Bill Stewart have been made aware of the alleged incident," the school said in an official statement. "Once they have all the facts, they will deal with it appropriately."

No charges have been filed against Holgorsen. According to the Daily Mail, Holgorsen was at the Mardi Gras Casino & Resort in Cross Lanes, W.Va., on May 18 when he became uncooperative with management. Casino security was called to deal with the situation. The Charleston Gazette reports that when local police arrived, Holgorsen left the casino and sat on a bench outside to wait for a taxi. Holgorsen showed up for a WVU golf function the next morning.

It's important to note here that there was no arrest made. The unusual setup between Stewart and Holgorsen and how that relationship will play out is a story everybody is understandably curious about. But it would be just speculation at this point to talk about the effects this report may have on that.
