Devan Bawinkel Will Have Huggins As New Coach

Huggins will be returning to his alma mater to replace John Beilein, who left to become the head coach at Michigan earlier this week.

Huggins was born in Morgantown and played basketball for the Mountaineers. He earned his bachelor's and master's degrees at West Virginia.

Huggins went 23-and-12 with Kansas State this season, taking the team to the N-I-T for their first post-season berth in eight years.

It was his first year back coaching after a year off following his dismissal from Cincinnati. He had a 399-127 mark with the Bearcats, including 15 N-C-A-A tournament appearances and the 1992 Final Four.
