Dana Holgorsen, the former West Virginia and current Houston Head Coach, is known for his fiery personality on the sidelines.
Today, Holgorsen showed a very different side when he was marching with his team during a protest.
Holgorsen, who enters his second season at Houston, supported his players and spoke out against inequality.
“We get so caught up in coaching, in techniques and schedules and practices and games, whether it’s football or basketball. We get so caught up in doing our jobs.”
Holgorsen then got visibly upset and had a hard time finishing before finally saying, “You forget the human element of it and that’s what this is about.”
