At WVU, Butler appeared in 146 games for the Mountaineers, winning a program-record 107 games. The Newark, New Jersey, native ranks third all-time in scoring at West Virginia with 2,095 points, behind Jerry West (2,309) and “Hot Rod” Hundley (2,180).
Butler was coached under John Beilein and Bob Huggins during his four seasons from 2007-10. The 6-foot-7 guard contributed to an NIT Championship in 2007, a Sweet 16 in 2008 and a Final Four appearance in 2010.
Butler will make his NBA G-League coaching debut on Nov. 5 when the College Park Skyhawks take on the Maine Celtics.
