 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins' new contract stipulates he can be fired for substance abuse or habitual intoxication affecting his job performance.
The university on Tuesday released details of the contract Huggins signed Friday.
In 2005, Cincinnati president Nancy Zimpher refused to extend Huggins' contract following his conviction for drunken driving a year earlier. Huggins took a year off, coached at Kansas State for one season and left for West Virginia, his alma mater, in April 2007.
Huggins will earn about $1.5 million per year over the next 10-plus years.
