    He's a head coach now. He's not going to take a step down.

    Given that Emory & Henry is a DIII school, it would not be a step down because he would be coaching again at the DI level. It would be different if he was at a DI-non Power 5 school or DI-FCS school because he would be a DI head coach. If he was a DII coach then it would be 50-50 because there are a few DII school that garner the same level of respect as a DI school.

    It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.

    I am assuming the contingency plan involves an internal hire. If that is correct, then I would almost rather hire a young coach than take an older coach, who currently coaches a different position. By having enough "young blood" on the staff, then it may make for a smoother transition to the post-Beamer era (especially if the next HC is an internal hire). If Ryan Pugh is not the contingency plan, then it could suggest some potential reshuffling of duties among the current staff. If so, then it could suggest that Stinespring becomes the new OL coach and Shane becomes the new running game coordinator. Both coaches would still retain their current duties and titles too. I am not sure how I like that scenario .

    If thats the case, don't we already have someone on staff who used to be a OL coach?

    Yes, my OP was a somewhat TIC post given that the bridge was burned. However, stranger things have been known to happen.

    I don't believe so or at least no name is jumping out at me. The only reason I made that suggestion is because VT seems to prefer to use the TE more as a blocker than as a receiver, so it kinda makes sense to have the OL and TE together since they will be using the same/similar blocking schemes. If VT used the TE as more of a receiver, then I would have suggested moving the TE responsibility to Moorhead since both positions would be primarily focused on their route running. It kinda makes sense for Shane to be the running game coordinator since he works with the RBs and should know what blocking scheme the OL should use to best open up the holes.

    But I think we can agree...

They just don't KNOW that the Athletic Department is run off our alumni contributions. Hell, most of them think when they give to the Alumni Association, that money goes to the Athletic Department. And this goes back at least 5 years to when I was working the phones for the VTAA. The Hokie Club has absolutely failed at cultivating a knowledgeable alumni base when it comes to Athletic funding. That organization is in desperate need of a revamp.

    That 1. the VT athletic department does not have 'more than enough cash' and 2. it does little good to actively discourage donors.

    We are far behind the big boys, and we'll probably stay there.
