Forrest Gump was never a member of the West Virginia coaching staff and is not currently. Jobs in college coaching are infamously difficult to snag for fictional characters.
"Life is like a box of chocolates," he famously said. "You never know what you're gonna get."
That's been life in Morgantown the past two seasons.
Last year, the defense was the Big 12's worst and hamstrung one of the league's best offenses. This year, the defense has easily been one in the top half of the Big 12 and the strength of the Mountaineers' team while the offense played musical chairs at quarterback and scored seven points in two games against major conference competition.
A week ago, West Virginia was scratching its head to figure out how it lost to Maryland, 37-0, while coach Dana Holgorsen took the blame for everything from the offense's lack of execution to the loss to Georgia Tech in the 1954 Sugar Bowl.

West Virginia offensive coordinator Shannon Dawson, nose tackle Shaq Rowell and punter Nick O'Toole delve into Baylor and what one can expect from the No. 17 Bears on all sides of the ball.
After seeing the way his team played against Maryland a week ago, West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen wanted to see a quick turnaround from the Mountaineers. He didn't want to see them get too down after the loss with Oklahoma State coming into town.
Last week many Oklahoma State fans came out of the 30-21 upset loss to West Virginia believing Dana Holgorsen and Joe DeForest were secret weapons with their knowledge of OSU and much of the Cowboys personnel. Now the advantage in secret intel would be in the OSU camp as the Cowboys now have longtime Kansas State player and assistant coach Joe Bob Clements on their side.
