More on Dakich

Now departed head coach Dan Dakich reportedly wanted to improve the terms of his contract after viewing the state of the WVU basketball program.

Dakich, who will return to the head coaching job at Bowling Green, was seeking either a lengthening of his contract term or improved monetary compensation.

When neither of those issues could be worked out, Dakich informed WVU and his team that he would no longer be the coach.

Dakich never signed a contract with WVU, leading the official press release to indicate that Dakich "decided not to accept" the head coaching position.

That's a battle of semantics, however, as Dakich was introduced as the WVU coach last week.

WVU President David Hardesty fired a not-so-veiled dart at Dakich in the press release announcing his departure, saying that "We have faith in our basketball program and it is unfortunate that Coach Dakich did not."
