West Virginia University President E. Gordon Gee issued the following statement following the death of Mickey Furfari:

“Mickey Furfari has been an institution in West Virginia for more years than many of us have been alive, and there is no one who has served as a more passionate advocate for the state in that time. Mickey was more than a sports reporter; he was a conscience for athletics and athletics administrators, always holding their feet to the fire to uphold the best interests of student-athletes. There will never be another Mickey Furfari.”
