West Virginia Football Fans Treated to Speech from Basketball Hall of Fame Bob Huggins



MORGANTOWN, W.Va – West Virginia fans at Milan Puskar Stadium who were missing Bob Huggins induction into the Basketball Hall of Fame received a treat in the second half of the football team’s game Saturday night.

The crowd cheered as loud as you could imagine a crowd watching their team losing to Kansas could possibly cheer when a package of Huggins’ speech was played.

“I’m forever grateful to be enshrined with the basketball legends in this Hall of Fame. I’m truly blessed and extremely humbled to be joining you,” Huggins said. “Thank you.

Huggins has won 916 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. He is the second in all-time coaching wins at WVU, with 326 wins.

The enshrined Hall of Fame coach thanked all of the important people in his life. Huggins thanked all of his players, coaches and teammates throughout his playing and coaching career.

“You’re all of my guys, I’m very proud and love all of you so much.”
