Despite that, Casteel wouldn't budge in his comments. He was asked if he had a timeline for determining his future.
"I don't have a timeline on anything,'' Casteel said.
WVU representative Matt Wells said the final total of tickets sold through the school was 7,800.
"Between the internal usage and tickets for troops, we used 11,000 total," Wells said. "We returned a couple thousand to the Orange Bowl to distribute to organizations they work with. We were responsible for those, though."
He said 2,300 tickets were shipped back to the Orange Bowl.
BRIEFLY: With still nearly five minutes to play in the third quarter, freshman Paul Millard replaced Geno Smith at quarterback for WVU and it appeared that perhaps coach Dana Holgorsen was already beginning to pull his starters. The score was 63-20 at the time, but more than 20 minutes remained in the game.
Afterward, though, Smith said he left the game because of cramps. Millard threw an interception -- WVU's only turnover of the game -- and Smith returned on the next series.
| In addition to breaking the record for scoring by a team in any bowl game, WVU also scored the most points ever in a quarter (35 in the second) and a half (49 in the first). WVU and Clemson also combined for an Orange Bowl record 1,032 total yards and a BCS record 103 total points. Of course, Tyler Bitancurt's 10 PATs were also a record and Austin, in addition to his BCS-record four TD receptions, set an Orange Bowl record with 11 catches.
| Shawne Alston started in place of injured Dustin Garrison and gained 77 yards on 20 carries. Andrew Buie also carried 13 times for 45 yards, including a highlight-reel 16-yard run to set up WVU's first TD of the game when he rolled over Clemson's Rashard Hall and kept going.
| Wes Tonkery, the redshirt freshman from Bridgeport, started in place of injured Terence Garvin at strong safety.
| Austin said before the game it would be a "coaches decision" as to whether he would return punts. He did not. Devon Brown handled the duties.
| Former Mountaineer and Miami Dolphin quarterback Pat White was WVU's honorary captain for the game. Other former Mountaineer players at the game included Steve Slaton and Anthony Becht.
| WVU coach Dana Holgorsen indicated late in the season he'd stop deferring the decision of a won coin flip and take the kickoff.
He chose to defer to Clemson, however, and it worked out on Wednesday. The Tigers went three-and-out on their first series and WVU subsequently won the early battle for field position.
| Half the upper deck lights at Sun Life Stadium went out early in the second quarter, but the field remained well-lit.
