REPORT: Bob Huggins Has Not Accepted That He is No Longer the Head Coach

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — According to a message posted on social media by Hoppy Kercheval of MetroNews, former West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins is having a difficult time adjusting to life after basketball.

Kerchevel said the following on Twitter tonight: “Coaching search may have been complicated by the fact that former Coach Bob Huggins still has his hands in the program. Sources do not believe Huggins has accepted that he is no longer the coach.”

Huggins, 69, was arrested last Friday for a DUI and resigned the following day. Rumors have also started to spread that Huggins believes that he can return to the Mountaineers following Josh Eilert’s one season as the team’s head coach.
