West Virginia forward Aaric Murray has left the Mountaineers after one season.
Coach Bob Huggins announced Monday that Murray is no longer with the program. Huggins didn't give a reason. He says it was a mutual agreement that it would be in Murray's best interest to finish his collegiate career elsewhere.
The 6-foot-10 Murray averaged nearly nine points and six rebounds per game last season as a junior. He transferred to West Virginia from LaSalle after sitting out the 2011-12 season.
Murray marks the fifth departing player from last season's roster.
Others who asked for their release include guards Jabarie Hinds and Aaron Brown, and forwards Keaton Miles and Volodymyr Gerun.
The Mountaineers went 13-19 last season, the worst record in Huggins' 31 years as a head coach.
