Isaac Chew and Brad Autry Expected to Follow Buzz to VT

Two of Buzz Williams’s former assistants at marquette are expected to join him at Virginia Tech and take their share of the newly increased assistant coaching pay pie of over $800,000.  Isaac Chew and Brad Autry have both left marquette and should be introduced as part of the Hokie staff soon.

Jerry Wainwright, who has head coaching experience at multiple schools and was an assistant for Buzz, is not expected to come to Blacksburg as far as I’ve heard.

Autry has been an assistant at arkansas-little rock, baylor, tulsa, and marquette.  He was with Buzz for all six of his years at marquette but only served as an assistant the last two years after being a Student-Athlete Development Coordinator the first four years he was there.  And he was the interim head coach when Buzz was suspended for a game in 2013.

Chew has experience as an assistant at murray state (Beamer), missouri, and marquette.  He pulled a James Johnson with illinois on his way from missouri to marquette and was with Buzz the last two years.

 Through the grapevine I’ve heard Ace Custis has asked to be interviewed after serving as an assistant coach at virginia state university this past year.

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.

    Ace Custis would be a great hire. He could bridge the gap from VT’s past great players to the young recruits of tomorrow. Plus he is a known quantity to the VT Alumni.
