Suddenly there are quite a few big name schools with coaching vacancies to fill if you believe the reports circulating on Saturday night. First we heard that Miami will be firing head coach Randy Shannon -- though this is yet to be confirmed -- and now it seems that West Virginia may have an opening as well.
Though this one won't be due to a firing.
According to a report, West Virginia head coach Bill Stewart is going to retire at the end of the season. This is from a report on EerSports.com, which is a pay site and can't be viewed without a subscription. There has been no official word on this from West Virginia or Bill Stewart.
Still, the same report also says that former WVU assistant Rick Trickett who now serves as Florida State's assistant head coach is a top target to replace Stewart, along with both Terry and Tommy Bowden.
