MORGANTOWN — WVU women’s basketball coach Mike Carey was honored in his Clarksburg hometown, on Nov. 28.

Mayor Catherine Goings unveiled a sign dedicated to Carey on behalf of the city during a ceremony at Jackson Square.

The sign will be permanently displayed on the Hewes Avenue parking structure above U.S. 50. Drivers leaving the city will see the sign, which is opposite of fellow native and Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher’s sign, which was dedicated in June 2016.

“I’m very proud to be from this area,” Carey said. “When I travel throughout the country, I always tell the people we have great facilities throughout West Virginia, but it’s the people that are the great ones. I am humbled, honored and appreciative.”

With 352 victories, Carey is the winningest coach in program history. His Mountaineers are off to a 6-0 start this season.

WVU moved up one spot to 12th in the USA Today coaches’ poll, released Nov. 28. The Mountaineers were ranked 11th in the Associated Press poll, released Nov. 27.
