A number of current and former college basketball coaches—Billy Donovan, Roy Williams, Bob Knight, Jamie Dixon, among others—gave presentations at a Nike clinic over the weekend at Robert Morris University in suburban Pittsburgh. But according to an eyewitness, West Virginia's Bob Huggins is the only one reported to have been "slirring [sic] his speech, swaying, talking in circles and dropping f bombs" when it was his turn.
Huggins's talk was called "Our Man to Man Offensive Concepts," and it was scheduled to take place at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. A source in Pittsburgh just told me eight different people who were there have confirmed to him Huggins was wasted. And here's a sampling of Twitter responses from some of those who were present for it:
Saw some great coaches at the Nike Clinic. Bob Knight was great, Billy D & Roy Williams were good. Bob Huggins was drunk during his session.

Bob Huggins, you were entertaining to say the least. It wasn't obvious at all you were trashed. "Bad shot lead to bad passes!" #classic

One clinic attendee in particular was not happy at all with Huggins's presentation skills:
