West Virginia PG Kerr Kriisa re-entering transfer portal


Point guard Kerr Kriisa, who transferred from Arizona to West Virginia this spring, is looking for a new home following the resignation of Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins.

Huggins stepped down Saturday following an arrest for suspicion of DUI in Pittsburgh.

Kriisa and his West Virginia teammates have a 30-day window to transfer due to the coaching change.

Kriisa spoke to ESPN about his decision to go back into the transfer portal on Friday.

“It’s been a crazy and busy week,” Kriisa said. “I’m deeply sorry about the situation as I was really looking forward to playing for Coach Huggins. Huggs will always be my guy. I’ve only known him for a few months now, but he is the most genuine man I have ever met. He is the man.”

Kriisa, 22, said he is open to remaining in Morgantown, depending on how the coaching situation shakes out.

“I will still consider coming back when the new coach is announced,” Kriisa said. “For now, I’m entering the portal, and want to get this figured out as soon as possible.”

The Estonia native led the Pac-12 with 180 assists for Arizona during the 2022-23 season. He posted three-year averages of 9.4 points, 4.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds and made 177 3-pointers in 76 games (70 starts) with the Wildcats.
