West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen has his name grossly misspelled

Mar 10, 2013, 6:10 PM | Updated: Mar 11, 2013, 3:38 pm

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.
