Former West Virginia guard James Long was formerly introduced as head coach at WVU Tech on Monday morning in Beckley. Bob Huggins and the majority of the current WVU basketball team were in attendance/
Long served as the Mountaineers video coordinator for the past two seasons and is the latest leaf off of the Bob Huggins' tree to get into coaching. Former WVU guard Joe Mazzulla accepted an assistant coaching position with the Boston Celtics this summer.
Long played for the Mountaineers from 2014-17 after transferring from Wofford after his rookie season.
He inherits a Golden Bear team that went 30-5 in the NAIA this season.
