Bob Huggins Rocking a Solid New Look This Offseason

Schuyler Callihan

With college basketball still months away from returning, West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins is doing his best to prepare for a run at a Big 12 title. In just the last few months, Huggins helped big man Oscar Tshiebwe with his NBA decision and eventual return to school and also welcomed in two newcomers, Taj Thweatt and Isaiah Cottrell. 

To be honest, there's not much of an offseason for a college head coach. They are always dealing with recruiting, checking in with their guys, studying film, and much more. However, one offseason ritual that Huggins seems to have continued is to grow out a beard of some sorts. Thanks to much of the United States being placed on quarantine for an extended period of time, it looks as if Huggins has taken his offseason look to the next level by growing out a pretty impressive flow as seen below.

Enough about Huggy getting meaningless press for doing nothing.
Have you guys heard of , by far the best coach on campus, Coach Mazey? He has turned a competitive Mountaineer baseball program into a national power and the best is yet to come. Last year eight Mounty's were drafted and they hosted a regional for the first time since 1955. Please get out there and cover this guys. They are a class act and an excellent representative for the school.
PEACE

MOUNTAINEER B-ball players coming down with COVID-19 up in M-town whilst Coach Huggs is going maskless down in Sunny FLA & the virus is spiking to 10,000 cases/day.
Bad look; Bad timing, too.

I love Huggs. But, not a good look for him in season. He's casual enough during the games. Dont need the Grisly Adam's look coach during a game. We have enough stereotypes to deal with being from WV. Let's not add more please.
