WVU Coach Dana Holgorsen Had to Be Removed from Casino
There’s an unwritten rule in the college football world that you may or may not have heard of since I just this second made it up: wait until you have coached at least one game to start acting like a jackass in public. Apparently West Virginia football head coach-in-waiting Dana Holgorsen lost his copy of my handbook, otherwise he may have been able to keep himself out of trouble at the Mardi Gras Casino and Resort on May 18.
According to the Charleston Daily Mail, Hologorson had to be removed from the casino shortly after 3 a.m. after his “behavior allegedly reached a point that necessitated involvement from on-site security.” No arrest was made, but the incident is said to have been captured on surveillance cameras and sources said university representatives who were with Holgorsen had to intervene. Police records show that a call was made to Metro 911 at 3:13 a.m. about a “white male” who was “refusing to cooperate with the casino’s management.”
Listen Dana, I feel your pain bro. Foxwoods Resort and Casino — the world’s largest casino — has taken my money on many a long, long evening. We all have a bad night on the craps table every now and then. We all want to strangle the blackjack dealer most of the time we sit down at a table. The difference is I’m not a soon-to-be head coach of a major Division 1 football program. Oh, and I also don’t act like a drunk (assumption) college kid who needs my buddies to get me out of trouble with security. Next time, leave the post-3 a.m. incidents to your players.
