Morgantown, West Virginia – Former West Virginia assistant coach Billy Hahn is in need of prayers after suffering a serious medical issue yesterday. Hahn, 69, was Bob Huggins’ right-hand man in Morgantown from 2007-2017 before retiring from the sport.

Former West Virginia guard Alex Ruoff and current graduate assistant coach for the Mountaineers said the following: “Please stop and take a moment to lift up my former coach Billy Hahn in your prayers, as well as the Hahn family. Thank you.”
