Mountaineer Football: Holgorsen Possibly Involved in Casino Incident

Bob AllenCorrespondent IIMarch 30, 2017

The Charleston Daily Mail's Mike Casazza reports that West Virginia University is looking into an "alleged incident" believed to involve the football team's offensive coordinator and head coach-in-waiting, Dana Holgorsen, at a Cross Lanes casino last week.

Apparently, Holgorsen—at 3 a.m. on May 18—was possibly having a little too much fun and was getting unruly to the point that casino security was required in order to get things under control.

From what we can understand from reports, it seems that Holgorsen was not arrested and released under the supervision of some university officials that were there with him.

Casazza also reports that WVU Assistant Athletic Director for Communications Mike Fragale, said in a statement that "Athletic director Oliver Luck and head coach Bill Stewart have been made aware of the alleged incident. Once they have all the facts, they will deal with it appropriately."

I, for one, hope that this is an isolated incident; the less negative news going on around the Mountaineer football program the better.

My opinion (take it for what its worth) is that this is an incident that should be handled quietly and without real need for anything serious to come from it. Give the man a verbal warning first; if incidents continue after that, then sure make things a little harder for the man.

I like to drink too; however, it is important not to make a fool out of yourself while doing it.
