Best Virginia Names New Head Coach For TBT



Chase Harler

Best Virginia announced a new head coach for the TBT Tournament next month. Former WVU guard and current Best Virginia general manager Chase Harler will also be the head coach.

James Long, who coached Best Virginia for the past three summers, is entering his first year at the University of Charleston. With the new gig, Long will have to step back from TBT.

“We are so happy for Coach Long and his new head coaching job at the University of Charleston! James will still be helping us, and his experience will be crucial during games,” Harler said.

So far, Best Virginia’s roster consists of Teyvon Myers (G), Jonathan Holton (F), Taz Sherman (G), Wesley Harris (F), Esa Ahmad (F) and Sagaba Konate (F). Harler will coach with now-assistant Kevin Jones.

Harler returns as Best Virginia’s general manager and head coach, while Greg Richardson (assistant GM) and Dave Ryan (marketing) are also in the works again with the team.

This will be the first time since 2020 that Best Virginia won’t host their own regional, playing in Charleston and Wheeling the last three summers. Pitt’s alumni team, The Zoo Crew, will do the honors of hosting their own regional this summer at the Petersen Events Center from July 19-24.

The Basketball Tournament is a 64-team field, which the winning team takes home $1 million.
