The money quote is pasted below - Pat White has been drafted by MLB teams before, and someone asked him at Big East media day why he doesn't play both at WVU, to which he responds:
Asked if he had spoken directly with Van Zant about playing for him,
White said: "(No), he wasn't (excited). He wasn't interested."
Then he paused and added:
"In my knowledge of West Virginia baseball, there's not been many players of my race on his team. He's not too high on it.
"Every player I've talked to doesn't like him. He's not a well-liked coach but I guess he has tenure so they never got rid of him. They're not successful at all."
Asked if he might have played if there were a different baseball coach at West Virginia, White said, "Maybe."
