Top Stories

WVU men’s basketball coach Bob Huggins is one of three coaches included in the first Conference USA Hall of Fame class.

Huggins’ selection in the inaugural hall of fame class commemorates his success at Cincinnati, where he coached from 1995-2004. During that span, Huggins won a national coach of the year award in 1997-98, was a three-time C-USA coach of the year and the conference’s “coach of the decade.”

Cincinnati hoops great Kenyon Martin, one of Huggins’ former players, will also be enshrined in the inaugural hall of fame class. Under Huggins, Martin was the consensus national player of the year in 2000.

Huggins has coached at West Virginia since 2007. He ended the 2018-19 season with 840 career victories, good for eighth all-time among the winningest coaches in Division I men’s basketball history.
