West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen released a statement today regarding the departure of Shannon Dawson, his offensive coordinator. Holgorsen has known Dawson for years; he was his quarterback and wide receiver coach at Wingate when Dawson played both positions in 1999.
“I want to congratulate Shannon Dawson on becoming the offensive coordinator at Kentucky,” Holgorsen said. “Shannon has been a friend of mine for many years and over these last four years at WVU, he has been an outstanding member of our staff. I wish him nothing but the best in his coaching career. He has a great future ahead.”
“I couldn’t be happier for him. I’ve known Shannon for a long time and trust him as much as any coach that I’ve ever been with.”
Dawson will be formally announced as UK’s new offensive coordinator tomorrow.
