Morgantown, West Virginia – Longtime West Virginia assistant coach Larry Harrison “parted ways” with the university this evening. Although it was clear that changes were needed within the basketball program, many players have expressed their displeasure with the decision.
Former West Virginia star and current New York Knicks point guard Miles “Deuce” McBride said, “This is crazy.” Gabe Osabuohien agreed, calling the decision “unjustifiable.”

Although some past and current players do not agree with the change, West Virginia basketball needs fresh perspectives and new blood on the staff, and this will ultimately be a very good thing for the program.
