MORGANTOWN, W.Va.–West Virginia University football head coach announced that senior kicker Josh Lambert is no longer with the team on Tuesday afternoon at his weekly press conference.

“We appreciate everything he’s done at West Virginia,” Holgorsen said. “I won’t comment on it any more than that.”

Lambert missed a 30-yard field goal attempt after returning from a three game suspension against Kansas State on Oct. 1.

Mike Molina replaced Lambert during the suspension and the junior connected on five of six field goal attempts and made each of his extra points during the Mountaineers’ first three games.

During his tenure at WVU, Lambert has 340 points, just 44 away from Pat McAfee’s program record of 384. He had 69 career field goals, which is second to that of Paul Woodside’s team-best 74.

As a sophomore, Lambert was named a Lou Groza Award finalist for the nation’s best placekicker after recording 30 field goals.

Last season he made 21-of-28 field goals.
