MORGANTOWN -- West Virginia men's basketball assistant coach Jerrod Calhoun will be named the head coach at Fairmont State today, separate sources close to the process said Monday.
Calhoun, 30, and FSU were working on a deal after the talks between the two intensified over the weekend.
The sources said the two sides had agreed on a deal, but nothing was signed. An announcement is scheduled today.
Neither Calhoun nor Falcons Athletic Director Rusty Elliott returned a message seeking comment.
Should Calhoun take the job, Huggins could fill that vacancy quickly. A source said Huggins and longtime friend Ron Everhart, fired by Duquesne last month, met earlier this month to discuss a position within the program.
Huggins wouldn't discuss the moves on his staff because nothing was finalized.
"There's nothing for me to do," he said.
There might be more beyond Calhoun and Everhart, too.
Yahoo! profiled director of basketball operations Billy Hahn in a story earlier this month and chronicled Hahn's career and, in particular, his move from assistant coach to director in 2011.
The story showed Hahn searching for a college coaching job.
"To my knowledge, he's not involved with any school right now," Huggins said.
Fairmont State went without a full-time coach last season after Tim Murphy was fired in November 2011 before the start of his eighth season. Murphy had been at the school as a player from 1981-85, and was an All-American as a senior, and returned as an assistant in 2001.
