Bob Huggins, former WVU men’s basketball head coach, has been placed on probation following his DUI arrest in June, as reported by Jeff Jenkins of WV MetroNews.
Huggins was accepted into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program as he is a first-time DUI offender in the state of Pennsylvania. The 69-year-old will have to complete the following within the next 12 months.
•12 months ARD probation (with the option of termination after 6 six months if all conditions are complete).
•Driver’s license to be suspended for at least 60 days.
•Alcohol treatment as recommended following the CRN (Court Reporting Network) assessment.
•The payment of all court costs
•Completion of an approved “Alcohol Highway Safety School” classes (approximately 12.5 hours of attendance required)
Huggins was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, Aug. 17 in Pittsburgh but was canceled due to the ARD program.
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 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.
