West Virginia University basketball great Da'Sean Butler is headed back to the Mountaineers, but this time as a graduate assistant.
Bob Huggins hired Butler, who is currently pursuing a master's degree in athletic coaching education at WVU.
As a senior during the 2009-10 season, Butler led the Mountaineers to the Final Four. In his final game against Duke, he tore the ACL in his knee. He finished as the third-leading scorer in WVU history with 2,095 points.
Butler underwent a third surgery on his left knee in July but hasn't given up his dream to play basketball. The surgery would have prevented him from playing professionally this year.
