It's an interesting setup, but it looks like Huggy Bear is a lifer now - whether he's coaching or not:

"West Virginia University Director of Athletics Shane Lyons has announced a four-year contract extension to 2021-22 for basketball coach Bob Huggins, extending his relationship with the University until 2027. The amended employment agreement takes effect immediately.

"This is a great day for our department. I want Bob Huggins leading our basketball program for many years to come," Lyons said. "Bob is a future Hall of Famer, who cares about his players and this University. His teams have been highly successful on the court and in the classroom. In finalizing this contract extension, I wanted the eighth all-time and third-winningest active Division I coach on our sideline leading his alma mater."

Under the agreement, following the 2021-22 season, Huggins will assume a five-year Emeritus status within the WVU Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, which concludes June 30, 2027. He will be involved in public relations and development activities in addition to other duties assigned at that time by the Director of Athletics. Huggins could defer his term of Emeritus status and continue to serve as head coach beyond 2021-22 with a mutual agreement between Huggins and the Director."

Great for Bob and WVU, bad for the rest of us.
