Looks like this has taken a legal turn, if you will.
According to WVMetroNews, WVU head football coach Bill Stewart’s new attorney, Michael Benninger, tells Metronews that he is meeting with WVU lawyers this morning to talk about Stewart’s future with the University.
Benninger says to some degree he and Stewart are operating in an “informational vacuum” since there have been no formal discussions yet on Stewart’s future. Benninger says he wants to find out from the University, “where we are, how we got here and how we go forward together.”
Benninger would not say whether he thinks the process is headed toward a buyout, but he did say that that his client is open to all options, but specifically, “what option best suits Bill.”
“We are now engaged in a meaningful process,” Benninger said of the upcoming meeting with University lawyers. “Bill is interested in doing what is best for his family and the University,” Benninger said.
Benninger said of the upcoming meeting, “We plan to listen to the University and develop a response.”
At this point, it seems like something could happen. This is why lawyers, despite their sometimes snake-like reputation, make the big bucks.
Stay tuned for more. Just get this over with, already!
