It’s Official: James Johnson Tech’s New Head Coach

Jay Wright?  Nope.  Bobby Lutz? Nope.  Shaka Smart?  Nope.  The Hokies have announced former assistant coach (as recently as three weeks ago) James Johnson as their new head coach: Official Announcement.  While Johnson has no head coaching experience, he was extremely popular with the current players and the two signees for the upcoming year.  He is considered a fantastic recruiter and coach.  This move likely will keep the current roster in place, it will be interesting to see if Harrell and Wood (the two 2012 signees) re-up with Tech or continue to pursue other options.

This is an interesting situation in that Johnson left VT for ACC rival clemson three weeks ago.  The result probably was the nail in Coach Greenberg’s coffin, and now Johnson is returning to take the vacated position.

Also, he’s single with no kids, so no hot daughters (sorry!).
