Bob Huggins Appears in Court, Sets Up Formal Arraignment



Bob Huggins

Former WVU head coach Bob Huggins briefly appeared in a Pittsburgh court this morning as a follow up from his DUI charge. Huggins waived his case at the hearing and set up a formal arraignment, which is now set for Aug. 17 at the Pittsburgh Municipal Court. The hearing is scheduled for 8 a.m.

West Virginia MetroNews was first with the report. Huggins was charged with DUI on June 16, resulting in his resignation 24 hours later.

According to the arrest report, Huggins was pulled over with a flat tire and was questioned about his whereabouts. Huggins was not sure where he really was as he was coming back from Columbus at a basketball camp with his brother. Huggins fumbled around for his ID and a Burger King receipt. The officer had Huggins get out of the car and complete a field sobriety test and couldn’t keep his head still. The reports state that Huggins blew a .210 and had empty beer cans in a trash bag.

Huggins won 935 career games spanning five coaching tenures at Walsh College, Akron, Cincinnati, Kansas State, and West Virginia. Huggins returned to his alma mater in 2007, taking the Mountaineers to their second Final Four in school history in 2010. Huggins finishes second in all-time coaching wins at WVU, with 345 wins. Huggins was enshrined into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September 2022.
