Raines has surgery; Odom leaves Hokies for unc charlotte

It’s been an eventful off-season for the Virginia Tech Hokies’ basketball team. First, their star player and the ACC’s leading scorer, Malcolm Delaney declared for the 2010 NBA draft, though he won’t hire an agent. Then Cadarian Raines reported on Twitter, which was confirmed by head coach Seth Greenberg’s Twitter account, that he had another surgery on his foot. That makes two surgeries in less than a year.

Yesterday, Hokie fans learned the Greenberg’s staff got a little smaller after assistant Ryan Odom reportedly accepted an assistant coaching job at unc charlotte. Odom had been with Tech since Greenberg came to Tech for the 2003-2004 season.

After five years of relative stability on the bench, Greenberg has lost two assistants in the last two seasons. Last year, Stacey Palmore left Blacksburg for an assistant coaching position with Georgia. However, neither Palmore, nor Odom, left Virginia Tech for any reasons other than to be closer to family.

Greenberg has not commented on Odom’s departure, but it’s probably only because the deal has not been finalized. You know Seth will wish him well, as do we, and is already looking for a replacement.
