WVU Releases Details Of Huggins' Contract

West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins' new contract stipulates he can be fired for substance abuse or habitual intoxication affecting his job performance.

The university on Tuesday released details of the contract
Huggins signed Friday.

In 2005, Cincinnati president Nancy Zimpher refused to extend
Huggins' contract following his conviction for drunken driving a
year earlier. Huggins took a year off, coached at Kansas State for
one season and left for West Virginia, his alma mater, in April
2007.

Huggins will earn about $1.5 million per year over the next
10-plus years.
