The West Virginia native was at WVU from 1979-99, when he accepted the associate head coach and wide recivers job under Chuck Amato at N.C. State. He was named to Urban Myer's Florida staff in 2005. Holliday, known as among the nation's best recruiters in Florida, would likely be an assistant head coach for the Mountaineers. He would mentor the tight ends and fullbacks and be the recruiting coordinator.
Head coach Bill Stewart did not comment on Holliday in his press conference today, when he announced three additions to the staff: associate head and safeties coach Steve Dunlap, cornerbacks coach David Lockwood and running backs and slot wideouts coach Chris Beatty.
