    Re: VT Coach dismissed

    I thought he had VT on the rise.

    That's good timing. At least they paid for the recruit's trip (so far).

    Re: VT Coach dismissed

    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.

    Why the hell did they wait so long? Their season ended Mar 9, and theyre just now pulling the trigger?

    Wow.... Total lack of class in how they handled that, and it will be amplified by the national press who seem to have a lot of respect for him. Better be a homerun or the AD will be out the door next.

    Re: VT Coach dismissed

    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.

    I'm also not terribly surprised to see this, but I posted the link because the way in which VT handled this was totally bush league.

    Not saying its right but that's their reasoning.

    They just brought in a huge recruiting class that were all freshman this past year, too. Seems like a strange time to fire the guy.

    Re: VT Coach dismissed

    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.

    "I want to change the leadership such that the person at the top of the program has the same kind of family environment our other programs have."

    What? And I thought it was all about winning games...
