Holgorsen surpasses Rodriguez on West Virginia’s all-time win list



The 2018 football season has included heartbreak and last second winners for the Mountaineers.

And after West Virginia’s win over TCU on Saturday, another milestone can be etched into the record books.

Head Coach Dana Holgorsen has now moved into sole possession of second place in all-time career wins at West Virginia with 61 wins.

Holgorsen at 47 years old has plenty of time to catch Don Nehlen’s 149 wins if he stays in the Mountain State for the duration of his career.

1. Don Nehlen (1980-2000)                       149-93-4          .605 %

2. Dana Holgorsen (2011-present)         61-38          .616 %

3. Rich Rodriguez (2001-07)                            60-26          .697%

4. Art “Pappy” Lewis (1950-59)                    58-38-2          .591%

5. Bobby Bowden (1970-75)                               42-26          .618%


Holgorsen is certainly in good company, and one could argue he is playing in the toughest league West Virginia has ever had to play in.

Can Holgorsen end up catching Don Nehlen?
