Father of West Virginia guard D’Angelo Hunter calls Bob Huggins ‘liar’ on Twitter

The West Virginia Mountaineers are preparing to take on Murray State in the NCAA Tournament, but they’re having to deal with some outside distractions courtesy of guard D’Angelo Hunter’s father.

Hunter is a junior who has played sparingly this season, averaging 5.8 minutes a game and appearing in 18 games total. He transferred from Navarro College in Texas in the offseason.

His dad took to Twitter and voiced his displeasure with how Bob Huggins and the Mountaineers’ coaches are handling his son. In case the tweets get deleted, we’ve screenshotted them for you here. There’s quite a bit, so strap in:

Clearly, someone’s not very happy in Morgantown. ( Michael Miller over at The Smoking Musket was the first to notice the rant.)

There’s a lot going on in those tweets, but the main theme seems to be that Hunter’s father isn’t happy with the amount of playing time his son is getting. In his eyes, Huggins and the West Virginia coaches promised him more than what he’s getting.

We have no way of knowing if that’s true. What we can guess, however, is that this probably isn’t the best way to voice your concerns, especially with an old ball coach like Bob Huggins.

West Virginia plays Murray State at 4 p.m. ET Friday on TNT.
