Florida assistant interviews for WVU's head coaching position

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Florida assistant coach Doc Holliday
was back in Gainesville on Wednesday, one day after interviewing
for the head job at West Virginia.

Holliday, Florida's safeties coach and associate head coach, met
with West Virginia officials about succeeding Rich Rodriguez.

"I went up and talked to them and that's about the extent of
it," Holliday said after practice Wednesday. "I've known those
guys for a long time and had a chance to spend a little time with

"I have no idea [what the status of the search is], to be
honest with you. I haven't heard from anybody up there."

Rodriguez left West Virginia to take over at Michigan.

Holliday is a West Virginia native and was a linebacker for the
Mountaineers before spending 17 years (1983-99) as an assistant
coach under Don Nehlen. Holiday also was a graduate assistant there
in 1979-80 and a part-time assistant in 1981-82.

Holliday was an associate head coach and receivers coach at
North Carolina State (2000-04) before joining coach Urban Meyer at
Florida in 2005.
