Mountaineers in the Pros

WVU Great Da’Sean Butler Hired by New York Knicks as Video Coordinator



West Virginia basketball great Da’Sean Butler has been hired by the New York Knicks to serve as a video coordinator under head coach Tom Thibodeau. Butler will join another former Mountaineer in Miles “Deuce” McBride, who is preparing for his second season with the Knicks.

The Final Fourcast podcast announced Butler’s new gig on Sunday afternoon.

Butler has recently been moving up the ladder in the coaching world, just completing a season assisting for the College Park Skyhawks, an NBA G-League organization. The Newark, NJ native was the assistant coach at Wheeling University the year prior.

At West Virginia, Butler appeared in 146 games for the Mountaineers, winning a program-record 107 games. Butler ranks third all-time in scoring at West Virginia with 2,095 points, behind Jerry West (2,309) and “Hot Rod” Hundley (2,180).

Butler was coached under John Beilein and Bob Huggins during his four seasons from 2007-10. The 6-foot-7 guard contributed to an NIT Championship in 2007, a Sweet 16 in 2008 and a Final Four appearance in 2010.
