Niemo’s Notes: Autry Hired, Delaney Still In Limbo

The Hokies have officially announced that Adrian Autry, an All-Big East performer in the early 1990s, has been promoted from the Director of Men’s Basketball Operations post to an Assistant Coach position. Story

In other news, if you haven’t checked your calendar lately, ocho de mayo is approaching at a muy rapido pace.  If you don’t understand the significance of that, May 8th is the date by which NCAA underclassmen have to remove their names from the NBA Draft list.  Malcolm Delaney has not removed his name to date.   If you aren’t worried, you might want to be.  I’ve heard credible rumors (I realize that’s an oxymoron) on both sides of the fence.  If I had to guess right now, I’d actually guess Malcolm doesn’t return, but I hope I’m wrong.  Losing Malcolm would leave Tech with just one true point guard, and with the rumors that Tyrone Garland may not be qualified, that would really leave the Hokies thin in the backcourt.  But we’ll see how it all plays out.  Next Monday/Tuesday will go a long way towards determining how next season will go for the Hokies.

In addition to his passion for Hokie hoops, Niemo has attended 126 straight VT football home games (every game since '94), eclipsing the 100 mark in September of '09 and recently attended his 20th consecutive VT/uva game. During the final home basketball game of his senior year, he was brought onto the court and was awarded 2 passes to the Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament in Philly during a timeout for being a "Super Fan" during his time at VT. The Hokie Bird made the award on behalf of Athletic Director Jim Weaver. Niemo was known to be in the front row of every home game with his familiar red afro hairdo.
