West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen has his name grossly misspelled

In Morgantown, West Virginia, Mountaineers head coach Dana Holgorsen is probably the most popular figure of the town’s 30,293 residents.

But following a down year in which WVU football went 7-6, Holgorsen’s name might not mean what it used to in the college football-crazed community.


Earlier this week, WSAZ-3 in West Virginia ran a story about WVU’s new running backs coach JaJuan Seider. To the side of the story’s graphic, however, is a picture of Holgorsen with a very loose interpretation of the head coach’s last name: HORSEWOMEN.

Now mistakes happen all the time, but something tells us that whoever provided the name for the story’s graphic either wasn’t a big fan of Holgorsen or just wanted to have a little fun.

While the misspelling is certainly worth a chuckle, no word yet on whether it cost anyone at WSAZ their job.
