    Coming to VT? I'm just stating that people on here are posting like he's not good enough for VT. Just read the posts here. Me, I think he's better than what folks are posting. Now, If he don't ,I hope it's Todd's decision Not to come. But they would be a fool not to ask. By the way, last year, he was Very interested to be a OL coach at VT. LSU & USC thinks he pretty good...NCHokie83...I agree with your last statement completely.

    im not feeling warm and fuzzy about the prospect of him choosing to return to tech, i should have said. his merits speak for themselves i would say, just dont see him coming here. IMO his name was thrown out there as a dream. but hey, with the way twitter works maybe itll get some buzz going.

    Now, he could certainly surprise me, but right now I just don't see Todd coming to Tech.
    Actually, I would argue that point. Personally, I'm a Virginia guy - certainly a southern boy. I have had opportunities to move far away and make more money, but have elected to stay close to home. Now perhaps the dollars were not comparable (they weren't), but I'll take the hills of Virginia over the congestion of Southern Cal all day long and the money simply doesn't matter.

    Especially with kids age 8-14.
    I will never understand people.

    he grew up in the virginia beach area, lived in houston, san diego and now lives in baltimore so i'm not sure he has a problem with an urban environment. given the amount of money he turned down, my guess is that he's just not super excited about dropping down to the college ranks and would prefer to stay in the pros. can't blame him there. if it were me, i'd have zero interest in recruiting. it seems like it would suck.
    It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.

    He grew up on Eastern Shore, not VB. Also, he now has kids, which may make Blacksburg look better. OTOH, it's a tough time to be a recruiter with three kids age 8-14.

    ah, did a quick look on google maps and thought it was on the hampton peninsula. it is across on the shore. he's been in baltimore with his family so my original comment still applies. personally, i think people give the "living in blacksburg" thing too much credence. to me, it comes down to him wanting to stay in the pros. unless he has head coaching aspirations and sees college as the fastest route to get there, why would he take a step down? to live in blacksburg? we will see though.

    i just don't really see VT as a positive career move for him.

    I really don't disagree. I'm not an A-A, but I know that in the past there have been issues dealing with the relatively low ration within the community. While Blacksburg is a great place to raise kids, I can see where some might prefer to raise them in larger more diverse cities.

    Not sure going from an NFL ASSISTANT OL coach to being a college OL coach is necessarily a step down, financially or status wise, or any other way you look at it. Coaches seem to move between the leagues pretty seamlessly, and there are tons of guys coaching in college that spent times coaching in the pros.
