Report: Bill Stewart's Exit Contract Now on Hold - Pending Investigation Into Leaks

In yet another twist to the already juicy West Virginia coaching drama, Mike Casazza with the Charleston Daily Mail is now reporting that the amended contract drawn up to govern the transition from Bill Stewart to Dana Holgorsen has been tabled pending an investigation into the source of rumors concerning the behavior of Dana Holgorsen to a Huntington, WV newspaper. The West Virginia athletic department clearly believes the source is internal and considering our own Charley West's report that Bill Stewart is the source, it is not a leap to view this news as an indication that athletic director Oliver Luck could be lining up his ducks to go ahead and fire Stewart. At a minimum, its obvious that West Virginia believes the leaks about Holgorsen came from within.
