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.
