MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Associate head coach Larry Harrison has left West Virginia with the Mountaineers off to an 0-4 start in Big 12 play, the school announced Thursday.

WVU said in a news release that it had parted ways with Harrison. The statement did not elaborate on Harrison’s departure.

Harrison spent 16 seasons on coach Bob Huggins’ staff. He also was with Huggins for eight seasons at Cincinnati.

“I want to thank Larry for his years of service to Mountaineer basketball, and I wish him well in his future endeavors,” Huggins said.

West Virginia (10-6) has lost four straight games to start the Big 12 portion of the schedule, including an 83-78 home setback to Baylor on Wednesday night. The Mountaineers rank ninth in the 10-team league in points allowed and ninth in free-throw percentage.
