Williamson leaves WVU for Fairmont

Freshman Paul Herbert Williamson, who was a walk-on from Logan High School, will leave the West Virginia University basketball team and follow former Mountaineer assistant coach, Jerrod Calhoun, to Fairmont State.

Williamson joined the 2011-12 Mountaineer team as a walk-on after a career at Logan High. He played sparingly. Coach Bob Huggins used the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder in situations where WVU needed a quick scoring burst, especially three-point baskets.

Calhoun was just hired as the new head basketball coach at Fairmont, which had an interim coach last season after Tim Murphy was fired just in front of the beginning of the 2011-12 season.
