Huggins Passes Bob Knight, Ties Roy Williams on All-Time Wins List
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – After defeating Elon in the first round of the Shriners Children’s Charleston Classic on Thursday night, WVU head coach Bob Huggins moves to No. 4 on the NCAA all-time coaching wins list.
Huggins officially passes Bobby Knight and ties Roy Williams, with his 903rd win.
Last Friday, Huggins tied Knight, and the two held the fifth spot together for six days.
Now, Huggins is tied with former Kansas and North Carolina coach Roy Williams. Williams won three national championships throughout his career, all of which came with UNC (2005, 2009, 2017). Williams took Kansas to four Final Fours in his 15 seasons in Lawrence.
Next up on the list for Huggins?
Former UCONN coach Jim Calhoun, who just retired on Thursday, after stepping down from his Saint Joseph’s job. Calhoun won 920 games in his career, and Huggins is hot on his heels.
When the Mountaineers play Marquette on Friday night, a win would allow Huggins to pass Williams and become the sole No. 4 all-time most winningest coach in NCAA history.
