MORGANTOWN, W.Va. ó Dana Holgorsen has been introduced as West Virginiaís head football coach hours after Bill Stewart resigned.
Athletic director Oliver Luck didnít address specific reasons for Stewartís resignation at a news conference Friday night. But Luck says recent developments had become a distraction.
Holgorsen was hired as offensive coordinator and head coach-in-waiting in December, while Stewart was to serve his final season in 2011. But both made unwanted headlines in recent weeks.
An intoxicated Holgorsen was escorted out of a casino last month. More recently, a reporter said Stewart had approached him shortly after Holgorsenís hiring to ědig upî dirt on his eventual successor.
PRYOR UPDATE
COLUMBUS, Ohio ó The relationship between former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor and a photographer and businessman who allegedly gave him money for signed memorabilia goes back to at least 2008, ESPN reported Friday.
Pryor announced on Tuesday he would give up his senior season with the Buckeyes in the midst of an NCAA investigation that has already led to a five-game suspension for him.
ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” reported a new allegation earlier this week that Pryor was paid $500 to $1,000 each time he signed mini football helmets and other gear for Dennis Talbott, a Columbus businessman and freelance photographer. Pryor’s lawyer has said there is “no truth” to the claim.
“I’ve been 100 percent consistent on that: The answer is no,” lawyer Larry James said of the allegation that Pryor received between $20,000 and $40,000 from Talbott for the autographed equipment and souvenirs. “That’s poppycock. I can tell you unequivocally that’s poppycock.”
BOISE STATE
INDIANAPOLIS ó Boise State met with the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Friday to discuss violations by its highly successful football program and other sports.
The football violations under review were committed between 2005 and 2008.The sanctions are part of a broader penalty package put in place by university officials for violations that also involve men’s and women’s tennis, and track and field.
