The excitement of the NCAA tournament has nothing compared to the frenzied atmosphere created by Mountaineer fans following CBSSportsline's report that Bob Huggins will accept the head coaching job at West Virginia University.
No confirmation has been forthcoming from any other source as yet, although ESPN Radio has said that Huggins is "close" to accepting the position. That outlet also reported that Huggins is discussing the offer with his family.
No official source at West Virginia was available to confirm or deny the report. An unnamed source "close to the negotiations" quoted by the MetroNews radio network website said that the report was "premature" - which could mean anything.
Attempts by BlueGoldNews.com to contact Uinversity of Cincinnati Athletic Director Bob Goin on Friday were unsuccessful.
