Da'Sean Butler Enters Coaching Ranks

This is sort of good news/bad news: former West Virginia star Da'Sean Butler, who blew his knee out against Duke in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, has been hired by his old Mountaineer coach Bob Huggins. Good for him - he's a smart guy, a self-made player and a real asset to any coach and program. But the bad news? He's had three surgeries on the knee since 2010, which makes his odds of playing any meaningful pro ball fairly slim (although he hasn't given up). We're really sorry to hear that he's had a tough road but have no doubt he'll succeed in coaching.
