According to Joe Schad, Marshall is hiring West Virginia associate head coach, tight end coach, fullback coach, and recruiting coordinator John "Doc" Holliday. Heather Dinich says that, as a result, Trickett is staying put at FSU. This move carries implications for the Gator Bowl matchup, adding uncertainty to what FSU will face from WVU as well as possibly adversely affecting WVU's offense. ESPN reports that Marshall's Defensive Coordinator Rick Minter will coach the Thundering Herd in their bowl game, the December 26th Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl. If Holliday is still at West Virginia through the Gator Bowl his focus is bound to be elsewhere. Beyond the bowl game, Marshall's hire keeps Wake Forest Defensive Coordinator Brad Lambert in place for the time being so this move has short and long term implications for FSU.
