Former WVU HC Bob Huggins in Attendance for West Virginia-George Mason



Bob Huggins

Former WVU HC Bob Huggins was spotted in attendance for West Virginia’s charity exhibition game against George Mason. Huggins, who resigned in June after 16 seasons with the program, is back at the coliseum.

Huggins was charged with DUI on June 16 before resigning just 24 hours later. The West Virginia native was driving in Pittsburgh when he was pulled over by police. Huggins had a shredded tire, thought he was in Columbus, Ohio and blew a .210 BAC.

Huggins was accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program in August as he is a first-time DUI offender in the state of Pennsylvania. Huggins did appear in person for Best Virginia’s TBT appearance in Wheeling. Huggins cheered on his former players and got to share a moment with Erik Stevenson.

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.
