Former WVU Player Darryl Prue Resigns as Coach After Altercation



First reported by multiple outlets in Alexandria, Va., former WVU forward Darryl Prue resigned as Alexandria City High School men’s basketball coach after a physical altercation with fans during their game on Tuesday night.

Prue told WUSA9 that one of the family members of one of the players that he coaches was harassing him. FOX5 reported that the family member said, “you don’t know how to [expletive] coach.”

Prue was in his third season coaching at ACHS, and was indefinetly suspended by the school, which then led him to resigning for his physical and mental health.

Prue played at West Virginia from 1985-89, appearing on three NCAA Tournament teams for head coach Gale Catlett. The Washington, DC, native averaged 11.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 127 games played for the Mountaineers. Prue was named to the High School Parade All-American team in 1985. The forward was named to the Atlantic-10 All-Conference First Team once (1989) and the Atlantic-10 All-Conference Second Team twice (1987, 1988). Prue had a career high of 25 points against St. Bonaventure, on February 5th, 1987, in a 63-49 win.
