MORGANTOWN -- Steve Dunlap is no longer a member of West Virginia's football coaching staff, but he's not left the university yet. And there's at least a chance that he won't.
Dunlap was at West Virginia's basketball game against Kansas Monday night and said he and the school have talked about him filling another job at the university.
"We're working on it,'' he said.
What that might be isn't clear. Dunlap is under contract until the end of June and is still collecting a salary and performing some administrative duties within the football program. A potential football recruit this week tweeted a picture of himself, coach Dana Holgorsen and Dunlap together in the football offices.
That's in stark contrast to the other coach that Holgorsen fired this season. The university paid what it owed to former cornerbacks coach Daron Roberts and cut him loose.
The difference between the two, of course, is that Roberts had no prior connections to West Virginia or the university. Dunlap has spent the majority of his life in the state and most of his professional life coaching at WVU.
When Holgorsen let Dunlap go earlier this month, sources indicated that he might not be finished at the university. He has apparently not pursued other coaching jobs.
