Bob Huggins (born September 21, 1953 in Morgantown, West Virginia [ [http://www.enquirer.com/bearcats/2002/03/23/uc_sullivan_huggins_2.html SULLIVAN: Huggins' 2 choices: Go home, stay home ] ] ) is the head coach of the West Virginia Mountaineers men's basketball team. Huggins previously held the head coaching positions at the University of Cincinnati (1989–2005) and Kansas State University (2006–2007). His 616–221 record (.736) during his 25 seasons as a head coach ranks him eighth in winning percentage and seventh in victories among active Division I coaches. He is one of only 4 active Division I coaches with 600 career victories. Huggins has been to 15 total NCAA tournaments, including 14 of the last 15 seasons. Huggins' teams have participated in the postseason 22 of 25 times. Huggins has averaged 23.6 wins per season, including 25.6 his last 15 years.

On April 5, 2007, he accepted an offer to return to coach his alma mater of West Virginia University [ [http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=2827212&campaign=rss&source=ESPNHeadlines ESPN.com - Report: Huggins leaving K-State for WVU] ] . After leading the Mountaineers to a Sweet 16 appearance, Huggins signed an 11-year contract with the university after the season ended.

Playing career

Huggins, who had moved to Gnadenhutten, Ohio with his family, played basketball for his father, Charles, at Indian Valley South High School. As a senior, he helped lead his team to a 26-0 season. [ [http://www.enquirer.com/bearcats/2002/02/24/uc_huggins_achieved.html Huggins achieved perfection in '72 ] ] Huggins began college at Ohio University. But Huggins returned to his native West Virginia, after transferring out from Ohio after his freshman season, playing point guard for the West Virginia University Mountaineers from 1975 until 1977. [ [http://www.msnsportsnet.com/page.cfm?section=4936 MSNsportsNET.Com - West Virginia University Mountaineers ] ] Huggins' career-high was 28 points against Virginia Tech, he averaged 13.2 points as a senior, and he totaled 800 career points in his three collegiate seasons. Teammate Maurice Robinson said of Huggins as a player, "You always knew that he was going to be successful in whatever he did because he worked real hard.” [http://www.msnsportsnet.com/page.cfm?story=10783&cat=exclusives]

Cut after a 1977 tryout with the Philadelphia 76ers, Huggins subsequently pursued a master's degree.

Start of coaching career

Huggins launched his coaching career as a graduate assistant on Joedy Gardner's staff at West Virginia University in 1977. He then spent two years as an assistant to Eldon Miller at The Ohio State University. Huggins was only 27 when he became a collegiate head coach, accepting the position at Walsh University in 1980. In three seasons at Walsh, he compiled a 71-26 record, twice earning NAIA District 22 Coach of the Year honors. Huggins directed the 1982–83 team to a perfect 30-0 regular season mark and an eventual 34-1 mark. After serving as an assistant at University of Central Florida for the 1983-84 season, Huggins was named head coach at the University of Akron where he compiled a 97-46 record and reached post-season play in three of his five seasons there including an NCAA bid during the 1985–1986 season. That bid would be the one and only time the Zips have reached the NCAA tournament to this day.

Career at University of Cincinnati

Cincinnati, while having a rich history had fallen under hard times. The once proud program that had been to 5 consecutive Final Fours from 1959 to 1963-- including a pair of national championships in 1961 and 1962--had not been to the NCAA tournament since 1976 when Huggins arrived in 1989. After being relegated to the NIT his first two years, Huggins would take the Bearcats to the Final Four in his third season--the first of 14 straight NCAA tournament appearances.

Huggins compiled a 399–127 record (.759) in his 16 years at Cincinnati, making him the winningest coach in terms of victories and percentage in the school's rich basketball history. Huggins directed Cincinnati to ten conference regular-season titles and eight league tournament titles. The Bearcats appeared in post-season play in each of Huggins' 16 seasons at U.C., advancing to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament two times in 1993 and 1996 and, in 1991-92, appearing once in the Final Four.

Huggins earned the Ray Meyer Award as the Conference USA Coach of the Year a record three times (1997–98, 1998–99, and 1999–2000), and was a unanimous choice for C-USA Coach of the Decade. He was selected national coach of the year by ESPN.com in 2001–02. His teams won five consecutive conference tournament titles--all four Great Midwest Conference titles from 1992 to 1995 and the first Conference USA tournament in 1996. He was named co-national coach of the year by The Sporting News last season and was Basketball Times' national coach of the year in 1997–98. He earned national coach of the year recognition from Hoop Scoop in 1991–92 and Playboy in 1992–93.

During this time the program also gained a reputation for a rough style of play and academic under-performance. Huggins routinely graduated only 30 percent of his players, compared with half of nonathletes at UC. Several of his players were also arrested and convicted on criminal charges. [http://online.wsj.com/article/SB114367599328911693.html?mod=todays_us_personal_journal The Basketball Coach Vs. the College President - WSJ.com ] ] The program was placed on probation in 1998 for a lack of institutional control.

During his tenure, Huggins coached three consensus All-Americans--Danny Fortson, Kenyon Martin (the consensus player of the year in 1999-2000) and Steve Logan.

He often developed young and inexperienced teams with as many as three freshmen starters into championship squads. For example, Huggins surprised some astute college basketball followers in 1997–98 by directing a team which had only one returning starter to a 27–6 record, conference regular season, and tournament titles, a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament and a Top-10 finish in the polls. The team was then upset by West Virginia in the tournament. Huggins' 2001-02 team, unranked when the season began, posted a 31-4 record, setting a school record for wins, made a clean sweep of the Conference USA regular season and tournament titles, and was a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, where they lost in double overtime to No 8 seed UCLA. In 2002-03, Huggins suffered a major heart attack on the last Saturday of September, but was present for the team's first practice two weeks later and coached the Bearcats with the same intensity that has become his trademark. Not surprisingly given the season's rocky start, the team qualified for the NCAA tournament only as an 8 seed, and were ousted in the first round by Gonzaga.

The 2003–04 season was business as usual for Huggins, who piloted the Bearcats to regular-season and tournament titles, and an NCAA tournament berth while amassing a 25–7 record. Despite a favorable draw — the team was sent to nearby Columbus for the first two rounds of the tournament — the Bearcats were mauled by the Illinois Fighting Illini, losing by 24 points in the second round. The 2004–05 Bearcats posted a 25–8 ledger, the ninth season in the past ten years that U.C. has won 25 or more games. They received only a 7 seed in the tournament, however, and gave eventual Elite Eight participant Kentucky a spirited game before falling in the second round.

Resignation

In August 2005, the University of Cincinnati bought out the final three years of his contract in exchange for his resignation. UC President Nancy L. Zimpher gave Huggins an [http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=2141189 ultimatum] —take a $3 million buyout, be reassigned outside the athletic department for the balance of his contract, or be fired. Zimpher said that the Bearcat program under Huggins didn't fit with her plan to upgrade UC's academic reputation. [ [http://www.wlwt.com/sports/4890801/detail.html Huggins Isn't Quite Finished at UC] from WLWT] However, she'd been seriously considering ousting Huggins since he was arrested for driving under the influence in 2004. He ultimately pleaded no contest to DUI. The traffic stop was recorded by police and aired on national tv. Huggins was quoted as saying, "Do you know who I am," and "You can't do this to me" to the officers. In the police report a reference was made to the fact Huggins had vomited on his Lexus door. According to the police report, Huggins said he had been with a recruit. Huggins DUI was no real surprise to critics of his, as he had been nicknamed Bob Chuggins long before the DUI because of his well rehashed drinking escapades.

At the time, Huggins' contract had a rollover clause which added a year every summer. Zimpher revoked that clause on June 11, 2004 after his conviction and suspended him for two months. Huggins was allowed to return for the 2004-05 basketball season. On May 11, 2005, he was given the option of leaving or finishing the last two years remaining on his contract. In a May 16, 2005 press conference, Huggins announced that he was staying until his contract expired on June 30, 2007,thus agreeing to the terms offered him by the University.

After publicly agreeing to work with no rollover, Huggins privately changed course. According to an August 23 letter from the University to Huggins attorney, Huggins approached the University "at least four occasions" during the summer of 2005 and asked that the rollover be reinstated.

Some say Huggins did not even find out about Zimpher's mandate until he checked his phone while in Las Vegas, and that he immediately flew home and found that his items at his desk had been taken without his knowledge and shipped back to his house. The public record shows a much different story:On August 8, 2005, in written correspondence to Huggins' attorney Richard Katz, the University said, "Because these differences are so fundamental, extending Mr. Huggins' contract beyond its current term does not constitute a viable option for resolving the present situation." On August 15, 2005, a letter to Katz from university legal counsel said, "Suffice it to say that our clients have remarkably different perspectives on the present situation, lending further credence to the notion that it is time for the University and Mr. Huggins to part company," and suggested to Katz that the parties "facilitate this process in as expeditious and professional manner as possible." The August 15 letter summarized by saying, "In sum, UC intends to terminate your client's contract with the University...and to sever its employment relationship him on date certain." On August 19, 2005, Mr. Katz met with the University to discuss the termination of Mr. Huggins' employment and told Katz they would need to hear from him by Wednesday, August 24, 2pm or the University would exercise its right to terminate Mr. Huggins' employment. This ultimatum and a summary of events were reiterated in a letter to Katz on August 23, 2005.

Huggins was replaced by assistant head coach Andy Kennedy, but his dismissal was the hot topic for the entire season. Many players and coaches (including Kennedy) paid homage to Huggins throughout the season. In an interview on ESPN, Huggins admitted that his 2004 arrest for driving under the influence may have created the perception that he was not a proper representative for the Bearcat program.

Career at Kansas State

After spending a year out of the coaching profession, on March 23, 2006, Huggins accepted the head coaching job at Kansas State University [ [http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=2380885 "Huggins accepts Kansas State job"] , ESPN.com, Andy Katz, March 23, 2006.] , replacing the fired Jim Wooldridge. Similar to Cincinnati, Kansas State has a rich basketball tradition that includes four final fours, but recently had fallen on hard times. The Wildcats had not been to the NCAA tournament since the 1996–1997 campaign and had not had a conference record better than 7–9 since the Big 12 was formed in the 1996. The previous three Kansas State basketball coaches (Dana Altman, Tom Asbury, Jim Wooldridge) had combined for a 236–232 record, while in that same period Huggins had gone a remarkable 379–113 at Cincinnati.

Immediate buzz at Kansas State

From his introductory press conference, [ [http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3270821384148345047&q=bob+huggins&hl=en"Huggins introductory press conference"] ] Huggins got the momentum in Manhattan rolling with a quote of "Why settle for 2nd when 1st is available?" For the first time in the 13,340 seat Bramlage Coliseum history, all season ticket packages were sold out as season ticket sales went from 6,500 in 2005-2006 to 13,000 for Huggins' inaugural year at Kansas State. While some looked down upon the Huggins hiring after the way he was ousted from Cincinnati, the majority of the college basketball world thought it was a great hire for both Huggins and Kansas State. [ [http://www.lawrence.com/blogs/all_wrist/2006/mar/23/ksu_huggins/"Huggins right hire for right school"] ]

Recruiting at Kansas State

During his first year at Kansas State, Huggins showed little sign of recruiting difficulty. Huggins molded his staff at Kansas State to help with his first two recruiting classes at Kansas State, and used his year off of college basketball to recruit some of the best prep players in America. [ [http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/sports/15874688.htm "Before Manhattan, Huggins was building a team of his own"] ] Before arriving at Kansas State, many had knowledge that Huggins could possibly bring some of the top college basketball prep stars with him to any school that would hire him. [ [http://sportsline.com/collegebasketball/story/9042400"Blue-chip recruits will follow Huggins, wherever he ends up"] ] Some names included consensus top 10 players in O. J. Mayo and Bill Walker along with other consensus top 100 recruits such as Herb Pope, Ramar Smith and Jason Bennett. While Mayo, Pope and Smith all ended up landing at other schools, Huggins was able to bring along Bennett for the 2006-2007 season and Walker, who initially was slated to join the team for the 2007-2008 season, managed to graduate from North College Hill High School early to participate in time for the spring semester at Kansas State. Huggins built his assistant coaching staff with recruiting in mind. He Hired Brad Underwood, a 1986 Kansas State graduate as Director of Basketball Operations. Underwood's hiring was essential in Landing 4-star [ [http://jucojunction.rivals.com/viewprospect.asp?pr_key=40728&Sport=2"Blake Young recruiting profile"] ] shooting guard Blake Young as he was Young's coach at Daytona Beach Community College. Assistant coach Frank Martin was the first assistant coach Huggins hired when he arrived at Kansas State. Martin, a Florida International graduate, and assistant under Huggins when he was at Cincinnati, has played a key part in Landing top recruits in the state of Florida. Luis Colon, a 6-10 forward out of Miami, Florida was lured to Kansas State largely on the recruiting efforts of Frank Martin. All and all, Huggins' first recruiting class at Kansas State included Bennett, Colon, Young and 5th year senior from St. Johns University, Jermaine Maybank who took advantage of a now-defunct NCAA rule that allowed graduating seniors with eligibility still remaining to transfer to another school with no penalty.

Huggins 2nd recruiting class was even more spectacular. The hiring of former Charlotte graduate Dalonte Hill was a key component to landing consensus top 5 player [ [http://home.nc.rr.com/rsci/RSCI_100_Summer_2007.htm"2007 recruit rankings"] ] Michael Beasley out of the Washington D.C area. Beasley, a famed Charlotte commit where Hill coached before Huggins hired him, switched his college choice to Kansas State soon after Hill was hired by Bob Huggins. Other recruits in the 2007 recruiting class include Walker, Dominique Sutton, a 6-4 swingman out of Durham North Carolina, Jacob Pullen, a 6-1 point guard from Proviso East High School and Fred Brown, a 6-2 shooting guard from West Palm Beach Florida. The 2007 class was so strong, both recruiting services from rivals.com and scout.com rated it the best in the country. [ [http://rivalshoops.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=608798"Wildcats have top recruiting class"] ] [ [http://scout.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=9&c=14&yr=2007"Scout.com recruiting rankings"] ]

2006-2007 season

Huggins's first season at Kansas State was viewed with cautious optimism from the media and fans. Kansas State had returned 4 of their top 5 scorers including 2nd team All-Big 12 member Cartier Martin and Honorable All-Big 12 member David Hoskins. The 2005-2006 team had been involved in many close games, going 7-9 in games decided by 5 points or less during the season. The Wildcats were picked to finish as high as 5th in the Big 12, [ [http://www.aggieathletics.com/pressRelease.php?PRID=11865"Preseason big 12 poll"] ] which showed the confidence Huggins's coaching peers had in his abilities. Prior to that season, Kansas State had never finished higher than 7th place in the Big 12. The early part of the season got off to a rocky start as the Wildcats started the year 4-3 which included embarrassing losses to the New Mexico Lobos and California Golden Bears by a combined 54 points. The Wildcats would benefit from the eligibility of Bill Walker and run off six straight wins including a tournament victory in the Las Vegas Holiday Classic. The Wildcats would soon hit another rough patch as they lost three straight games to Xavier, Texas A&M and Texas Tech. Even more damaging was the loss of star freshman Bill Walker when he tore his ACL five minutes into a 69-65 loss to Texas A&M. After the Walker injury the Wildcats seniors Martin, Lance Harris, and Akeem Wright stepped up their game and led Kansas State to a 7 game winning streak which included a win over the ranked Texas Longhorns in Austin that broke a 22-game Texas home winning streak. The 2nd half of Big 12 play saw the Wildcats go 4-4 including a pair of losses to its in-state rival the Kansas Jayhawks. Kansas State ended the Big 12 season in the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament losing to Kansas for a third time, but did pick up a crucial 66-45 win over Texas Tech. Despite this win, the Wildcats were left out of the NCAA tournament for the 11th consecutive year. This streak is the fourth longest among BCS conference schools. Kansas State felt particularly snubbed due to the fact it was the first major-conference team not to make the NCAA tournament after winning 20 games overall and 10 games in conference. The Wildcats settled on a NIT bid and went 1-1 beating Vermont and losing to DePaul. Kansas State ended the season 23-12 (10-6) which was the most victories from a Wildcat team since 1987-1988.

Career at West Virginia

2007–2008 season

Bob Huggins announced April 5, 2007, that he had accepted the position of head coach at West Virginia University. Huggins former employer Kansas State University offered to match the offer from West Virginia University plus some additional, but the desire to return home won out with Huggins. The WVU contract has been reported as being valued at five million over five years with an $800,000 base salary in the first year. He has been quoted as saying "There are incredible teams in the Big East and I’m so proud to represent this state and this wonderful University." Coach Huggins succeeds John Beilein who is currently the head coach of the University of Michigan. Huggins's alma mater is West Virginia University where he graduated magna cum laude in 1977 after lettering two years for the Mountaineers. Coach Huggins finished his senior season at WVU with a 13.2 ppg average and nearly 800 points for his career. After he graduated from West Virginia, he came back to coach as a graduate assistant. In 2002, when WVU's longtime coach Gale Catlett departed the team in the middle of the season, Huggins was a lead candidate for the position; however, he decided to remain with Cincinnati.

Only 9 games into the 2007-2008 season, the Mountaineers entered the AP Top 25 poll carrying a #24 ranking with an 8-1 record. On December 22, 2007 Huggins achieved his 600th victory as a head coach in a road game at Canisius. On January 15, 2008, it was announced that Huggins let West Virginia backup quarterback on the football team, Jarrett Brown, to join the basketball team. Head coach of the football program, Bill Stewart, talked to Huggins and had no problem with Brown joining the basketball team. Terrelle Pryor, the #1 football recruit and a blue chip basketball recruit who was interested in West Virginia under former head football coach Rich Rodriguez, announced he was interested in the school again due to Brown being allowed to play both sports, which he stated he wanted to do at the collegiate level. [ [http://www.timeswv.com/wvu_sports/local_story_015234352.html The Times West Virginian - COLUMN: Pryor gets some food for thought ] ]

After the Canisius victory, West Virginia lost to University of Oklahoma, 82–88, for the second loss of the season. West Virginia lost two of the next three games, to sit with a 10–4 record. However, the Mountaineers continued a four-game win streak with victories over rivals Marshall and Syracuse. The Mountaineers then faced the #9 Georgetown Hoyas at home. The Mountaineers lost the game, 57–58, but controversy arose. West Virginia guard Da'Sean Butler shot a layup as time expired, but Georgetown forward Patrick Ewing, Jr. swatted the ball away as the game buzzer sounded. However, the block has been viewed as a goaltending rather than a fair block, which would have resulted in a West Virginia victory. [ [http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/recap?gameId=280260277 ESPN - Georgetown vs. West Virginia - Recap - January 26, 2008 ] ] However, West Virginia could not rebound in the next game, and got destroyed by Huggins' former team, the Cincinnati Bearcats, to a final score of 62-39. They rebounded with a 77-65 victory at Providence, but then lost at #25 Pittsburgh in the Backyard Brawl on a buzzer-beating three-point shot by Pitt's Ronald Ramon to win the game, 55-54.

With their record at 16-7, the Mountaineers followed up with a 81-63 victory over Rutgers, then a 89-68 victory over Seton Hall. The Mountaineers were then upset by Villanova, 56-78, but bounced back with an 80-53 victory over Providence. The Mountaineers earned their 20th win of the season in the 85-73 victory over DePaul. With their record at 20-8, the Mountaineers extended its 20-win season streak to four seasons, the best ever since a seven-season streak from 1981-1987. Bob Huggins' 20-win season moved his record to at least 20-wins in 22 of his 26 seasons coaching. His 20 20-win seasons in his collegiate career at the Division 1 level is tied for 12 place all-time. "I'm old," Huggins said of the accomplishment. [ [http://www.dailymail.com/Sports/WVUSports/200802280157 Charleston Daily Mail - WVU Sports - Victory plateau important to Mountaineers ] ]

After the DePaul victory, the Mountaineers lost a critical game to #16 Connecticut, 79-71. However, Joe Alexander scored a career-high 32 points and added another 10 rebounds. In the following game, the Backyard Brawl and Senior Night, the Mountaineers won their home game finale over their arch rival, the Pittsburgh Panthers, 76-62, to improve to 10-7 in the conference and move to 6th place. Joe Alexander again had a career day by posting a consecutive 32-point performance, also adding 6 rebounds.

The Mountaineers finished the year with an 83-74 overtime victory over St. John's, then opened the Big East Tournament with a 58-53 victory over Providence. In the second round of the tourney, the Mountaineers upset the #15-ranked Connecticut Huskies, 78-72. Joe Alexander contributed with a career-high 34 points and 7 rebounds. The Mountaineers then, however, lost to the #9 Georgetown Hoyas, 55-72, in the tourney semifinals.

The showing by WVU in the Big East tourney propelled them into the West region of the NCAA Tournament as a #7-seed. The Mountaineers defeated Arizona in the first round 75-65 and defeated #2-Seed Duke 73–67 to move into the Sweet Sixteen giving head coach Bob Huggins his first sweet sixteen appearance since 2001 when he coached at Cincinnati. In the Sweet 16 matchup against #3-seed Xavier, the Mountaineers rallied from an 18-point deficit early in the game to tie the game 64-64 and send it into overtime. However, the Xavier Musketeers pulled out the victory, 79–75, with two 3-pointers in the last 1:18 of the ballgame. West Virginia finished the season ranked in the top 25 at #17.

At the end of the season, Huggins signed an 11-year contract extension that would keep him coaching at West Virginia until the age of 65. The contract will pay Huggins $1.5 million a year, as opposed to the $800,000 paid to him in his first season at WVU.

2008–2009 season

On May 18, before the season even began, Bob Huggins' finished out his recruiting class with the signing of prep star small forward, Devin Ebanks. The #13-ranked prospect was a signee with Indiana before decomitting and looking at Memphis, Texas, Rutgers, and WVU. Ebanks was the last addition to the freshman class that included #11-power forward Kevin Jones, #34-power forward Roscoe Davis, and #26-point guard Darryl Bryant.

Recruiting success

Huggins has been known, at Cincinnati and Kansas State, for his great recruiting programs. He signed three No. 1-rated junior college players and five McDonald’s All-Americans to Cincinnati, while six of his last nine recruiting classes ranked among the nation’s Top 10. His 2007 recruiting class at Kansas State was ranked No. 1 in the country by several outlets, Rivals.com, Scout.com and Sports Illustrated. Scout.com is reporting that Huggins has already succeeded in recruiting 4 of the nation's Top 100 players for the 2008-2009 season.
