Pittsburgh (KDKA) — West Virginia University men’s basketball coach Bob Huggins is expected to resign from his post after he was arrested and charged with drink driving Friday in Pittsburgh, According to CBS Sports.

According to Pittsburgh police, at about 8:30 p.m. Friday, they saw a black SUV on Merchant Street off Ridge Street in the middle of the road with the driver-side door open.

Once the police got to the car, they found that it had a flat tire.

We are gathering more information and will take appropriate action once the review is complete.”
