Coaches contracts not affected by pay WVU freeze

A pay freeze at West Virginia University next year won’t affect salary increases in store for many of the school’s athletic coaches.

Football Coach Dana Holgorsen is set to draw at least $500,000 more next year, and at least $50,000 more is in line for men’s basketball Coach Bob Huggins.
