He got them close, but not they started to regress. Tough call. In a way he was kinda like McCarney - got them out from being one of the worst teams to being relevant, but couldn't turn the corner and make the tourney.
Sad to see Greenberg get canned. However when you fail to make the NCAA tourney and regress from the past few years there's a good chance of getting fired. However the big question is why did they fire him now? It's right in the middle of the offseason recruiting period, and most of the hottest coaches are either taken or aren't interested in leaving their current team. If they wanted to hire a quality coach, Va Tech should have fired Greenberg weeks ago.
3 Assistant coaches left and the rumor is they told they AD that Greenberg was horrible to work for. VT decided they weren't going to renew Greenberg at the end of next year so they decided not to wait and take action now.
Good Luck to them bringing in a decent coach after treating a Greenberg like they did. Remember ACC is adding Syracuse and Pittburgh. VT will become the BB equivalent of TCU. If the reason is the assistant leaving and telling the AD about Greenberg than being men and saying it to his face that's weak. It you have something bad to say about someone say it to their face not go behind their back. Nothing I hate worse than that.
