MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia is working on a new contract for men's basketball coach Bob Huggins.

Athletic director Oliver Luck said Friday a reworked deal should be completed in the next few months.

In 2008, Huggins signed a contract that pays him at least $20 million in guaranteed income through 2019.

The Mountaineers have gone to the NCAA tournament in each of Huggins' five seasons at his alma mater. He has a 120-56 record there. West Virginia went 19-14 last season and lost to Gonzaga in the second round of the tournament.

The Charleston Daily Mail first reported Luck was reworking the contract.
