Harrison out as Associate Head Coach at West Virginia

The West Virginia University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has parted ways with men’s basketball associate head coach Larry Harrison.

Harrison has spent the last 16 seasons on the Mountaineer basketball staff, including the last 13 as associate head coach. He was in his 24th season overall on Huggins’ coaching staff after spending eight seasons with him at Cincinnati.

Since 1989, Harrison was a part of 16 bids to the NCAA Tournament and three NIT bids. During Harrison’s tenure, Cincinnati advanced to the Final Four once (1992) and Elite Eight twice (1993, 1996). West Virginia won the 2010 Big East Championship and advanced to 10 NCAA Tournaments, including the 2010 Final Four and five NCAA Sweet 16s.

“I want to thank Larry for his years of service to Mountaineer basketball, and I wish him well in his future endeavors,” head coach Bob Huggins said. 

A search for Harrison’s replacement will begin immediately.
