Bob Huggins

The son of a coach, and a student of the game, Bob Huggins seemed destined to follow in the footsteps of his father: the late, great Charlie Huggins. Now, with more than 900 wins at the collegiate level, the student has become the teacher. And a master class is always in session at West Virginia, where Huggins’ Mountaineers reached the program’s first NCAA Final Four in 2010 since 1959. That same year, West Virginia captured its first Big East conference tournament title. Before returning to his alma mater – where he played three seasons in the mid-1970s – Huggins led the University of Cincinnati to a combined 18 regular season and conference tournament championships and the 1992 Final Four. Whatever the setting, Huggs brings a certain tenacity that he expects his players to emulate. While at times he is brash, animated, or even explosive, there always exists amidst the chaos the realization and understanding that his focus is on winning – in the game of life and the game of basketball.
