Bob Huggins is coming home. Late Thursday night, West Virginia University named Huggins the 21st head men's basketball coach at his alma mater. Huggins is resigning his current position at Kansas State University.
Kansas State athletic director Tim Weiser made the announcement that Huggins was leaving in a short news release Thursday afternoon. Then WVU director of athletics Ed Pastilong announced Thursday night that Huggins was Morgantown-bound.
Huggins was born in West Virginia, and has often said coaching here would be his dream job.
In a statement from WVU, Huggins said, "I'm incredibly happy to be coming back to West Virginia. I left a great situation at Kansas State...I just wanted to come home."
