WVU hoops parts ways with longtime assistant Larry Harrison

West Virginia men’s basketball announced that it has parted ways with associate head coach Larry Harrison on Thursday.

Harrison was in his 16th season at West Virginia and had been associate head coach since 2010. Prior to joining head coach Bob Huggins in 2007, Harrison served as a scout for the Washington Wizards.

Harrison was head coach at Hartford from 2000-06. Before that, Harrison served as assistant coach at DePaul from 1997-2000 and he was an assistant coach at Cincinnati with Huggins from 1989-97.

Huggins thanked Harrison for his time on the West Virginia staff.

“I want to thank Larry for his years of service to Mountaineer basketball, and I wish him well in his future endeavors,” Huggins said in a statement.

In its release, the team said a search for Harrison’s replacement will begin immediately.

West Virginia lost on Wednesday to Baylor, 83-78, falling to 0-4 in Big 12 play.
