Twitter reacts to Bob Huggins’ health scare

West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins’ health scare led to some tense moments in Morgantown on Monday night. Here is the video of Huggins dropping to his knees during the game against Texas.

Huggins was looked at by medical personnel, but continued to coach as WVU beat Texas 77-62. He says his defibrillator went off in a classic Huggins-style post-game press conference.

Naturally, when Huggins went down, Twitter reacted with concern, fear, and light humor. 

Obviously in all seriousness, this Bob Huggins’ health scare was a nerve-racking moment to watch. I saw many on Twitter question why he is still coaching if he has these health issues. Frankly, it’s not for monetary reasons. Bob Huggins could retire tomorrow and not need to make a dime the rest of his life. This is what these coaches do, they coach. They love it. It’s in their blood. And most of them won’t go away until they’re told to or forced to.
