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.

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

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