Dunlap out as staff shakeup continues

Steve Dunlap, WVU’s special teams coordinator and outside linebackers coach, was dismissed Saturday according to a source close to the program, the second postseason shakeup on Dana Holgorsen’s coaching staff.

A 35-year coaching veteran, Dunlap was a member of Don Nehlen’s staff from 1984-2000, serving as defensive coordinator the final 10 years. He then coached at Syracuse, N.C. State and Marshall before returning to West Virginia in 2008.

During the past five seasons, he also had a stint overseeing the Mountaineers’ safeties and served as assistant head coach this past season when WVU finished 7-6, including a 38-14 Pinstripe Bowl loss to Syracuse.

“First Big 12 game, home opener, packed crowd — what more could you ask for?” he said in a rhetorical postgame moment that perfectly summarized the setting for Saturday’s 67-57 loss to Oklahoma.

“I really thought we were going to pull it out,” mused Henderson, whose 21 points were nearly half his team’s output when WVU led 43-31 with 18 minutes to play. That’s when the guard’s splendid day — and West Virginia’s hopes of a season-changing victory — suddenly fizzled.
