Morgantown, West Virginia – Bob Huggins, West Virginia’s legendary head coach and the active leader in all-time wins, is 69 years old, but he wants to continue coaching.
In an interview with The Athletic, Huggins had the following to say when asked whether he will retire or continue coaching after this season: “Come on, do I look old?” Huggins said. “I’m having fun, man. Why would you quit a job you have fun in?”
Huggins, 69, has over 900 wins, was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year, but he’s still missing that one big prize in his long and illustrious career: a national championship.
With his success in the transfer portal, the odds of him winning a national championship at West Virginia has increased significantly. Huggins is able to recreate his roster every year and bring in exactly the type of players that he wants in his system with the help of the Country Roads Trust.
As long as West Virginia continues to be successful in the transfer portal and continues to win, Huggins could potentially coach well into his 70s and have a lot of fun doing it.
Is this Bob Huggins’ last season at West Virginia?
