WVU Friends Gift Shop to Auction One-of-a-Kind Item
High Top Table Autographed by Hall of Fame Coach Don Nehlen

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Friends Gift Shop of West Virginia University Hospitals is auctioning a table autographed by legendary former WVU football coach Don Nehlen. The table is available on eBay® with a starting bid of $750.00.

The handcrafted high top table is 42 inches tall and has a square top with a golf theme. Four painted bar stools, each with a separate golf club, accompany the table.

Coach Nehlen sat at the table and autographed copies of his book, “Tales From the West Virginia Sideline” on August 4, 2006. The table is also signed by the book’s co-author Shelly Poe, WVU’s sports information director since 1988.

The 2006 College Football Hall of Fame inductee won 202 career games at Bowling Green (53-35-4) and WVU (149-93-4) and took the Mountaineers to 13 bowl games.

Money raised from the sale of the table will go to the Friends of West Virginia University Hospitals. The Friends support patient care and comfort throughout the hospital.
