Patrick Beilein returned to the state of West Virginia during the summer of 2012, when he was introduced as the head coach of the men's basketball program at West Virginia Wesleyan College.
Beilein has experienced both the highs and the lows in his first head coaching job, finishing with a losing record of 12-15 last year. But he now has the Bobcats inside the top five in the Mountain East Conference.
The former West Virginia University men's basketball player starred for the Mountaineers from 2002-06, helping WVU earn berths in the Elite 8 and Sweet 16 during his junior and senior seasons.
Now at West Virginia Wesleyan, Beilein has transformed from a player to a coach. He recently allowed WBOY Sports to film an All-Access piece during practice, along with game day, as the Bobcats played host to the Urbana Blue Knights.
