Holgorsen announced the reinstatement Wednesday, clearing the way for Worley to be in uniform for the Mountaineers when they play at Texas Tech on Saturday.

West Virginia University football coach Dana Holgorsen will get at least one more year to right the ship of the football program.

In 2013, WVU suffered its first losing season since 2001, posting a 4-8 record. It was Holgorsen's third year in charge of the program.

WVU Director of Athletics Oliver Luck acknowledged the program needs work to get back to a winning level.

"We simply must get better," Luck said in a prepared statement released to the press Tuesday.
