Where Are they Now? Kevin Pittsnogle

Who doesn't remember the 6-11 tatted up beast from West Virginia who helped the Mountaineers and their magical run in 2005? Pittsnogle had such a following and such allure that the NY Times decided to send a reporter after him to catch up with what he has been doing these days. That reported did not expect to get Pittsnogled on his way to West Virginia. Check it out here.

Basically Pittsnogle is doing what everyone thought he would be doing.

"Now, at 24, he is a middle school teacher in his hometown. He is also an unpaid assistant coach for a high school basketball team. He bowls in leagues three nights a week and occasionally plays bingo at Big Bucks Bingo. His wife, Heather, is a bank teller. They have two children and live in a double-wide trailer, and together they wonder how much appetite they have for uprooting their lives again so Pittsnogle can have one more chance at a basketball career."

No real suprise here, Kevin is just living the West Virginian dream.
