Larry Harrison has done so much for me and my basketball career. I have seen first hand how his work ethic, honesty, & driven mindset has affected mountaineer basketball in a positive way. It is a true shame & disappointment that he will no longer be on staff at WVU.

Harrison spent the last 13 seasons as the associate head coach at West Virginia, 24th with Bob Huggins. Harrison was a part of Huggins’ coaching staff at Cincinnati as well.
WVU men’s basketball will conduct an immediate search for Harrison’s replacement.
West Virginia currently sits at a 10-6 (0-4 Big 12) record. WVU will travel to Norman, Ok. and take on Oklahoma on Saturday at noon as they look to win their first conference game.
