Dana Holgorsen is making an offensive coaching change on his Houston staff

Dana Holgorsen announced this afternoon that the Coogs are parting ways with one of their assistant coaches.

Wide receivers coach and assistant head coach Tyron Carrier and the program have officially parted ways.

Carrier had been a part of Holgorsen's staff the past five seasons at both Houston and West Virginia.

Holgorsen provided the following statement on the decision:

"We are grateful for the Tyron's commitment to our program as an assistant coach and as well as a student-athlete at the University of Houston."

"After meeting today with Tyron, we determined it was in the best interest of both sides to part ways at this time. We wish him and his family the best going forward."

Carrier was a standout receiver at Houston where he finished his career second in receptions (320) in college football history. He went on to play a few seasons in the CFL for the Montreal Alouettes.

In 2018 Carrier was named The FootballScoop Receivers Coach of the Year for his work with the Mountaineer receiving corp.

Before joining the West Virginia staff, Carrier worked as a graduate assistant at Baylor.
