MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — West Virginia University believes that Bob Huggins’ claims that he never resigned from his position as the head coach of the Mountaineers is completely false.

According to Hoppy Kercheval of MetroNews, West Virginia University responded to Huggins’ lawyers demands that he be reinstated by saying, “What is clear, however, is that on the evening of June 17, 2023, Mr. Huggins met with members of the men’s basketball staff and student-athletes to announce that he would no longer be coaching the team.”

The university continued, “The University will not accept Mr. Huggins’ revocation of his resignation, nor will it reinstate him as head coach of the men’s basketball program. If Mr. Huggins or his counsel attempts to publicly suggest that he somehow did not resign and retire from the his position, please be advised that the University will swiftly and aggressively defend itself from these spurious allegations.”
