Former West Virginia and Houston head coach Dana Holgorsen might be close to inking a deal to join a new coaching staff.

According to a report by Matt Zenitz, a national writer for 247 Sports, is in talks with Nebraska about a role. It’s not clear what Holgorsen’s title would be exactly, but it’s safe to assume he would be involved with the offense.

Despite beating the Mountaineers in his first game against WVU since leaving Morgantown, Holgorsen was fired by Houston on Nov. 26 after a 4-8 season.

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.

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