Virginia Tech men’s basketball announced on Thursday that Jeff Reynolds has been promoted to Director of Scouting and Game Management.
Reynolds has been on the Virginia Tech coaching staff for Buzz Williams’ first three seasons, serving as Director of Men’s Basketball Operations. Prior to Williams’ arrival in Blacksburg, Reynolds served under Williams at Marquette.
“Jeff just finished his fifth season with us, and thus far in his tenure, his title has yet to reflect his responsibilities,” Williams said in a statement. “It is important to me that we finally get his title more in-tuned with his role, even though Jeff never asked for the change. He has been critically important to the strategy, planning, and execution of what we want to be about on the floor each season. Although we have been forced to change to a degree each year, his wisdom as a former head coach has been irreplaceable. Knowing what we want to try and accomplish is imperative, but in a league as powerful as this, working year-around studying the nuisances and patterns of the opponent has been just as important, and Jeff has been phenomenal in handling both sides of that. His new title more accurately reflects what he does on a daily basis.”
Reynolds is the second assistant on the Virginia Tech men’s basketball staff to received a promotion or new title. Josh Chambers, who was originally in charge of creating graphics for the staff, was named Director of Recruiting on May 4.
