West Virginia University and former UC Bearcats head coach Bob Huggins received a four-year contract extension to be the Mountaineers' head coach through the 2021-22 season, the school announced Monday afternoon - with five years of Emeritus status possible beyond that.

From wvusports.com:

"This is a great day for our department. I want Bob Huggins leading our basketball program for many years to come," Lyons said. "Bob is a future Hall of Famer, who cares about his players and this University. His teams have been highly successful on the court and in the classroom. In finalizing this contract extension, I wanted the eighth all-time and third-winningest active Division I coach on our sideline leading his alma mater."

Under the agreement, following the 2021-22 season, Huggins will assume a five-year Emeritus status within the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, which concludes June 30, 2027. He will be involved in public relations and development activities in addition to other duties assigned at that time by the Director of Athletics. Huggins could defer his term of Emeritus status and continue to serve as head coach beyond 2021-22 with a mutual agreement between Huggins and the Director.
