Worley Reinstated to WVU Mountaineers Football Team

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen has reinstated cornerback Daryl Worley after the sophomore pleaded no contest to misdemeanor assault in a nightclub altercation.
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.
Monongalia County Assistant Prosecutor Cindy Scott said today that prosecutors recommended a six-month jail sentence, but a magistrate late Wednesday placed Worley on unsupervised probation until next August.
Holgorsen says he’s confident that Worley, in the coach’s words, “will be a better man and teammate moving forward.”
Worley was arrested Sept. 17, three days after the altercation at a nightclub in Morgantown. Holgorsen also suspended him indefinitely, and Worley missed games against Oklahoma and Kansas.
