A plane landing in Morgantown, WV, isn’t normally a big deal, but throw a LSU logo on it, and have it arrive just days after the Tigers fired head coach Les Miles, and Mountaineer Nation is going to panic a bit.
It is no secret that LSU is most likely looking for an offensive-minded new head coach, and coach Holgorsen is widely regarded as one of the best offensive minds in the country. His Mountaineers are also one of only two Big 12 teams still undefeated, which includes a win over an SEC team.
Also of note, coach Holgorsen’s contract only runs through 2017, and has yet to get an extension done with the Mountaineers.
Could Holgorsen really go from flirting with the hot seat in Morgantown as WVU tries to get over the hump in the Big 12, to a team frustrated of falling just short in the SEC?
As our friends at the Smoking Musket point out, it isn’t likely.
A little research into the plane, a Learjet 45 which landed on Monday morning, reveals that it owned by a medical transport company out of Lafayette, LA, and, with not much else to go on, was most likely in town for something related to WVU Medicine and Ruby Memorial Hospital.
For the time being, WVU fans can relax.
