Here’s some speculation that will drive West Virginia Mountaineers fans nutty.
A jet with an LSU logo landed at Morgantown Municipal Airport late on Monday morning, according FlightAware.com. The jet reportedly left Lafayette, La., around 8:37 a.m. central time this morning.
Of course, this comes just two days after LSU fired head football coach Les Miles four games into the season.
The Mountaineers are 3-0 so far this season and one of only two undefeated teams left in the Big 12. Could Dana Holgorsen be on the short list for LSU? Well, LSU is clearly looking for an offensive-minded coach after Les Miles failed to produce an offense that matched his quality defense. Also, Holgorsen’s contract only runs through 2017.
As for Les Miles, he was in his 12th season as LSU’s head coach after posting a 114-34 overall record with a national title in 2007. But, LSU has gone 15-11 in conference since 2013 and lost on Saturday 18-13.
The whole thing seems like a total long shot, and frankly, I don’t see Holgorsen to LSU ever happening. But nonetheless, it’s a fascinating storyline to watch, especially if West Virginia continues to exceed expectations this fall.
Do you think Holgorsen would be a fit at LSU? Let us know in the comments below.
