Dana Holgorsen won’t be leading Houston in a future return to Morgantown. The Cougars have decided to end his tenure as head coach.

News about Holgorsen being fired by Houston broke Sunday morning and was first reported by Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle.

The 52-year-old Holgorsen finishes his Houston tenure with a 31-28 record in five seasons. Houston went 4-8 this season, the program’s first year in the Big 12 Conference. One of those four wins was over WVU.

After eight years at West Virginia, Holgorsen left the Mountaineers following the 2018 season to take over a then budding Group of 5 Houston program with the thought he would help guide the Cougars through an eventual transition into a major conference.

Holgorsen led WVU to a 61-41 mark with two 10-win seasons and an Orange Bowl title.
