West Virginia extends Bob Huggins’ contract, plans for future

Sportsnaut

West Virginia extended the contract of basketball coach Bob Huggins through the 2023-24 season, including the option to remain as head coach or move into another role after that

Huggins will earn $4.15 million for each season he coaches.

Under the agreement, Huggins will have emeritus status at the university when he leaves the bench and will transition into primarily public relations and development roles within the athletic department. Once he leaves coaching, he will be paid $50,000 annually, plus any deferred compensation he is owed.

Huggins is eligible to move into the emeritus role at the conclusion of the 2023-24 season or defer the title, pending mutual agreement with the athletic director. The two sides will review his status on May 1, 2023, and make the decision on his future then.

Should he remain the coach then, his status will be reviewed each May 1 until the agreement expires June 30, 2027.
