Bob Huggins Dressed in Red to Support Cincinnati Against West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The West Virginia Mountaineers (9-21) are in Cincinnati, Ohio today to play their regular season finale against the Cincinnati Bearcats, and there is a very familiar person to both programs in attendance.

Bob Huggins. Huggins, 70, has coached both programs during his long and illustrious career, but today, he’s supporting the Bearcats and dressed in red. Huggins was the head coach at Cincinnati from 1989-2003 and racked up an impressive 399-127 record (.759 winning percentage) before resigning from the school following a DUI arrest.

In 2006, Huggins took the head coach position at Kansas State before returning home to coach the Mountaineers from 2007-2023. Huggins had a 345-203 record while in Morgantown before being forced to resign this past summer.

Huggins also attended the Cincinnati versus West Virginia game in Morgantown earlier this year on January 31 and wore gold and blue for that game, so it’s very likely that he is simply supporting the home team each game. In addition, his former player, Kenyon Martin, was honored at the game and Huggins was there to support him as well. It is certainly unusual to see Huggins in anything but West Virginia Mountaineers gear, however! Check out the photo below:
