For the Big 12, Holgorsen's pending departure means there will be at least 40 percent turnover among the conference's football coaches. During that time frame he led the program to seven bowl games going 2-5 in those including the 2012 Orange Bowl win over Clemson.
Holgorsen, who spent two seasons as Houston's offensive coordinator under Kevin Sumlin, has always been a target of university power brokers, including Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta, the chairman of UH's board of regents. At best, the Cougars have until say 2024-25 in the hopes of realignment beginning in a big way.
But Holgorsen asked for more than West Virginia was willing to offer, leading to a stalemate. Holgorsen, who was the top candidate for the job that opened when Major Applewhite was dismissed Sunday after two seasons with the Cougars, will sign a five-year deal worth $20 million, according to The Athletic's Bruce Feldman and SB Nation's Steven Godfrey, who first reported the agreement. Holgorsen was paid $3.6 million in salary this past season at West Virginia. He would enter 2019 on the hot seat.
