Bob Huggins, WVU basketball coach, arrested for DUI in Pittsburgh, per police report
Bob Huggins isn’t having the greatest offseason over in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Huggins was arrested in Pittsburgh Friday night on charges of DUI, according to a police report. The 69-year-old was reportedly in a Black SUV that was parked in the middle of the road obstructing traffic late Friday night. When asked to exit the vehicle, officers “observed him having difficulty maneuvering the SUV.”
He was later administered a field sobriety test, which he failed according to the report.

This is the 2nd time Huggins has been charged with DUI. He was also charged back in June 8 of 2004, when he was head coach at Cincinnati.
Huggins found himself in hot water earlier this offseason already. He made an appearance on the Bill Cunningham Show in Cincinnati when he used homophobic slurs multiple times. Huggins was later suspended and took a salary cut of $1 million.
Huggins has been coaching at the DI level since 1984 and is objectively one of the sport’s greatest winners. He owns 934 victories all-time, which ranks 8th in CBB history (across all 3 divisions) and the most of any currently active (*) head coach.
