Since he entered office in the summer of 2009, Clements has preached and practiced letting his university leaders operate their departments without his interference.
Sources said that has not changed and while Clements was kept up to speed on developments after Holgorsen was kicked out of a Cross Lanes Casino on May 18 and is paying closer attention now because the situation necessitates it, he's also aware that increasing his involvement would add unnecessary urgency.
He's instead relying on Luck even more now to manage his department.
Part of WVU's reaction immediately after the Cross Lanes episode was to investigate it, but also look into other rumored or alleged occurrences.
A source said WVU officials have not seen the video footage from Mardi Gras Resort & Casino, but have spoken with those who have and that WVU trusts their review that Holgorsen was guilty of nothing too severe.
WVU officials also called the Wheeling Island resort and casino and asked about an alleged incident before spring football began.
Holgorsen - and many others connected to WVU - attended an annual party in Wheeling that eventually spilled into the casino, but WVU found nothing wrong in conversations with casino management about that party and the behavior of those in attendance. One source said the party included an off-duty police officer to keep an eye on things.
The Daily Mail made attempts at different times on multiple days to speak with employees and management at Wheeling Island and the Glassworks Grill at Oglebay Resort, which was the alleged site of a separate incident. No one - and no documentation - could confirm any incident at either spot.
Both were part of the events listed in the stories in the Herald-Dispatch as well as the Intelligencer/Wheeling News-Register, the latter of which cited "witnesses" as opposed to sources.
The Herald-Dispatch also said Holgorsen was involved in three undefined incidents at the bar in Waterfront Place in Morgantown and that he'd been banned from the bar.
"Absolutely not true," one source said. An athletic department source also denied the ban. Holgorsen has lived in that hotel since late March.
Sources said Holgorsen and others have been made aware of expected behavior and the level of scrutiny going forward, but that there was no punishment dispersed by Luck or Clements and there is no "zero tolerance" standard moving forward.
Holgorsen will attend the WVU Classic today and Friday at Berry Hills Country Club and will not be held from any other Mountaineer Athletic Club function he'd committed to previously.
