West Virginia officials expect men’s basketball coach Bob Huggins to resign in the wake of his arrest on Friday night for allegedly driving under the influence, sources told ESPN late Saturday.
Huggins and the school have been in conversations throughout the day regarding his departure, sources said, and Huggins has indicated that’s his intention. A resolution on Huggins’ departure is expected in the near future.
A source told ESPN’s Jeff Borzello that Huggins informed his players of his impending resignation in a team meeting on Saturday.
The arrest came just six weeks after Huggins used an anti-gay slur in an interview with a Cincinnati radio station, an incident he later apologized for in a statement.
