Ron Everhart (born (1962-01-11)January 11, 1962 in Fairmont, West Virginia) is an American college basketball coach, currently serving as an assistant coach at West Virginia University. Previously, he was head coach at Duquesne University, Northeastern University and McNeese State University.[1]


Career[edit]

Everhart took over as head coach of the Duquesne Dukes basketball team on March 29, 2006. Growing up less than 100 miles from the Duquesne campus, Everhart watched Duquesne basketball frequently. In his first two seasons at Duquesne he took a team that had won only three games the season prior to his arrival, to ten wins in 2006–07 and seventeen in 2007–08. Everhart has previously turned around programs at both McNeese State and Northeastern. In 2008–09 the Dukes made even more strides under Everhart, their signature performance coming in an upset win over #9 Xavier on February 7, 2009, Duquesne's biggest win in years. The sell out crowd stormed the court following the game. In his third season at Duquesne he led the Dukes to the Atlantic 10 championship game. The Dukes lost the game 69–64, but the Dukes earned an NIT bid, marking the Dukes' first postseason tournament since the 1994 NIT. He was fired on March 22, 2012 following the completion of his sixth season as coach of the Dukes.[2][3] On May 14, 2012 Everhart was named an assistant coach at his home-state West Virginia University under hall of fame coach and close friend Bob Huggins.[4]
