STILLWATER â€” Offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen will have plenty of options when he decides to leave the Oklahoma State football program. Whether that decision is made this year or next, suitors will not be a problem for Holgorsen.
Asked if his concern about Holgorsen leaving for another job has increased in the past eight days, Cowboy head coach Mike Gundy seemed confident Holgorsen will return for the 2011 season.
â€œI feel good about him being on our staff,â€ Gundy said. â€œI'm not saying there's not going to be people trying to hire him. I just feel good about him (being) comfortable with his working environment here.
â€œI think he's comfortable with the players we have on offense and who we have coming back.â€
Here are a couple potential options for Holgorsen:
*Texas offensive coordinator. The position opened on Monday, and the Longhorns might want Holgorsen to install his high-powered attack. Would Holgorsen leave for another offensive coordinator job?
*There are several head coaching positions that are open, like Miami, and others that aren't but could be soon, like Stanford and Michigan. Those openings could create a trickle down effect, which could then lead to a quality head coaching job for Holgorsen.
