Bob Huggins Asked About Retirement Timeline on Pardon My Take Podcast



West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins appeared on Barstool’s Pardon My Take podcast for Friday’s edition of the show. Huggins was asked about his retirement timeline to which the Hall of Fame coach gave a genuine answer.

“I don’t have a timeline. I don’t think about those things. Honestly, I don’t,” Huggins said. “People ask me how long have you been coaching. I absolutely have no idea.”

Huggins is entering his 41st season as a head coach, 16th at West Virginia. With many often speculating when Huggins will think about going into retirement. Huggins has said in the past that as long as he continues to have fun, he’s staying. In August 2021, WVU Director of Athletics Shane Lyons announced Huggins’ contract extension as head coach until the 2023-24 season. Huggins’ contract with the university lasts until June 30, 2027.

This upcoming season Huggins and his coaching staff will try to get back on track after a 16-17 season in 2021-22. West Virginia went out and recruited well in the transfer portal, bringing in Erik Stevenson (South Carolina), Emmitt Matthews Jr. (Washington), Tre Mitchell (Texas) and Joe Toussaint (Iowa). Critics told Huggins to get with he times and this offseason showed signs of doing so. Huggins even admitted to liking the transfer portal more than he used to.

“I thought I’d hate it but I like it,” Huggins said.
