MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia men's basketball coach Bob Huggins has hired former Mountaineer great Da'Sean Butler as a graduate assistant.

Huggins says Butler will be "fantastic" for the program.

Butler underwent a third surgery on his left knee in July but hasn't given up his dream to play basketball. The surgery would have prevented him from playing professionally this year.

As a senior during the 2009-10 season, Butler led the Mountaineers to the Final Four. In his final game against Duke, he tore the ACL in his knee. He finished as the third-leading scorer in WVU history with 2,095 points.
