Former WVU Receiver Stedman Bailey will not be rooting for his former head coach on October 12th.
Morgantown, WV – When WVU travels to Houston on October 12th, they will be taking on a familiar face in Dana Holgorsen.
Holgorsen, who coached at WVU from 2011 to 2018, left the Mountaineers in January 2019 to take on the same position at the University of Houston. Originally a member of the AAC, the Cougars are now a Big 12 member, competing as a Power Five program for the first time.
While Houston has been struggling in their inaugural season in the Big 12, one matchup that many have had circled is Houston’s date with WVU on October 12th. The history between Holgorsen and WVU is there, and this will be a true measuring stick of progress for both programs since his departure.
Former WVU Receiver Stedman Bailey, who played under Dana Holgorsen, shared his thoughts on next Thursday’s contest earlier today on Twitter.
Blessed Monday morning! Thinking about my mountaineers and the road win against TCU. Next up is university of Houston & me personally. I hope we go punish coach Holgs.

Here is what Bailey had to say regarding Holgorsen taking on his former team:
“Blessed Monday morning! Thinking about my mountaineers and the road win against TCU. Next up is university of Houston & me personally. I hope we go punish coach Holgs.”
There you have it, folks. Even Holgorsen’s former WVU players will be rooting against him on October 12th. Everyone in the state of West Virginia should do the same.
West Virginia and Houston kickoff at 7 p.m. on October 12th. The game is set to broadcast on FS1.
