Report: Holgorsen Linked To SEC Opening

As I had mentioned in earlier articles, tis the season for coaching changes. And this time it is hitting a little closer to home.

Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports has listed WVU’s Dana Holgorsen as a potential candidate at Arkansas.

“Washington State’s Mike Leach has a better chance at this job than Tennessee. West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen has been a popular name here as well. But some of the direction of this search should be determined as Yurachek finds his sea legs in his first few days on the job.”

While this doesn’t exactly seem like a good fit for Holgorsen or Arkansas it makes sense, and here is why.

Many were not aware that Holgorsen was a coach of interest for the Houston Cougars last season before, then UH athletic director, Hunter Yurachek hired Major Applewhite. It is unknown how close Holgorsen got in the selection process and he may not have even considered the position. But Houston was interested at one time.

So what does that have to do with the Arkansas opening? Monday morning it was announced that Yurachek has been hired as the athletic director at Arkansas.

Holgorsen may be behind the likes of Mike Leach from Washington State, Brent Venables from Clemson and Chad Morris from SMU though.
