Babcock Prepared for Head Coach Search

Posted: Updated:
The decision to release James Johnson from his coaching duties at Virginia Tech wasn't an easy one according to Whit Babcock, but the athletic director felt he need to make a change for one reason.  To give Tech a chance to compete in the NCAA Tournament.


 Money was another key topic in Tuesday’s press conference. While Babcock wasn’t specific, he did say he would peruse candidates he wanted aggressively, compensating coaches for their expertise.

The last issue may be one that just comes with human nature. In today’s world fans want results now. That doesn’t exclude making a hire. But Babcock says it may take until April to find “the” guy for the job due to potential candidates coaching in the NCAA Tournament.
