Just found out that Da'Sean Butler is back with the Mountaineers this year working as a graduate assistant. Welcome back Da!!!— John Antonik (@JohnAntonik) August 17, 2012
It's certainly a disheartening development concerning his knee injury and rehab, but I'm sure Coach Huggins and the Mountaineer faithful are ecstatic that one of our former hoops heroes is coming home to help forge the future of Mountaineer Basketball.
