Beilein Statement

In a prepared statement, WVU head basketball coach John Beilein says he will be the coach at WVU next year.

"It has never been my philosophy to comment on job openings at other schools, but the speculation today about me accepting another head coaching job is erroneous," Beilein said in the prepared statement.

"I am flattered by the interest and recognition that the basketball program has received. West Virginia University and the people of West Virginia have been great to me and my family. I will be the basketball coach at West Virginia next season and I look forward to continued success."

No further comment was available from WVU athletic administrators.
