As a longtime fan of people who take their jobs seriously but do not take themselves seriously, I am now officially in the tank for Dana Holgorsen.
In an interview published in the American-Statesman, Austin spirit animal Matthew McConaughey noted that he looked to the West Virginia head coach for his character Kenny Wells’ hair in “Gold,” which opens Friday.
As our sister site Hook ‘Em pointed out, Holgorsen can get a little animated during games (and has had choice words for the Longhorns in the past).
Word got around Wednesday about Matthew and his hair. This was Holgorsen’s exceptionally classy response:
@McConaughey happy to help! You nailed the look – It's not easy… #GOLD#wvurecruiting

Holgorsen fans (and WVU) quickly went to work.
To wit, here is the poster for “Gold”:
Which was followed by West Virginia fan Brian W. making this:
Well done, everybody.
