As discussed in October, Bob Huggins isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. On Tuesday, he signed said contract and WVU announced it Wednesday to some fanfare with a late-afternoon press release while Huggins is in Orlando prepping for the Old Spice Classic.
Standard document that, most notably, spells out the next 11 years. If all goes as planned — and I would have to imagine, as Huggins has planned — he coaches six more years and then works five years in an emeritus position. The whole thing runs through June 30, 2023. Huggins turns 70 that September.
Two things otherwise stood out: Huggins gets $25,000 every time he beats Kansas in the regular season. All of the incentives from the previous contract are now doubled. That’s merely an update after four years, but it could be significant. Review the old incentives, and then multiply them by two, if you’re interested right here.
