Wofford’s Mike Young to become head coach at Virginia Tech


(WSPA) – A source familiar with the search tells 7 Sports that Wofford Basketball Coach Mike Young has agreed to become head coach at Virginia Tech.

Virginia Tech made an announcement Sunday evening at 8 o’clock and will officially introduce Young as the new Hokies head coach in an 11AM Monday press conference in Blacksburg.

Young guided the Terriers to a 30-5 record this season and his team advanced with a victory in the NCAA tournament for the first time.  He’s been Wofford’s head coach the past 17 seasons.

Virginia Tech, an Elite Eight team this season, recently lost Buzz Williams to Texas A&M.

Young is a Radford, VA native and attended Bridgewater College in Virginia.  He was an assistant at Radford University before arriving at Wofford as an assistant coach in 1989.  He served under then Wofford head coach and current Terriers athletic director Richard Johnson until ascending to the top job there.
