Bob Huggins took over the basketball program at his alma mater in 2007 after one year at Kansas State and an impressive 16-year run at Cincinnati, during which he took the Bearcats to 14 straight NCAA Tournaments.

He guided the Mountaineers to the Final Four in 2010, where they lost to Duke, and he won his 700th game as a head coach in 2011, becoming one of just four active coaches with 7oo wins.
