That ignores the very logical reasons some of the assistants had for leaving. Not all, but some. I guess it all depends on whether you're more interested in slamming Greenberg than in looking at the bigger picture.
If you're gonna be the abrasive, hard@ss-type coach, ala Knight or Coach K, you'd better win big. Otherwise your act wears thin very quickly. The only thing that I think has saved SG's job for this long is that Weaver has some of the same personality traits, and is also very reluctant to ever admit he makes a mistake.
I understand that you will defend this guy to your very last breath, but this is starting to get absurd. Is there anything that could happen to this program short of him eating a live puppy on national television (even then I can completely envision a scenario where you would posit that the puppy had it coming somehow) that would get you to even consider for one second that the man has a shortcoming or two?
I have no interest in "Bashing" the man, but I care far more about the future of the Virginia Tech basketball program than I do about the future of one man. Therefore when very real issues present themselves (like the outlandish amount of coaching turnover and player transfers), I think they should be explored rather that ignored or swept under the rug in the ever increasing pile of "things that are totally, in no way, shape or form Seth Greenberg's fault." Seriously, that pile is getting so high that the rug doesn't even touch the floor anymore.
Have you ever taken one second to think about just the laundry list of excuses that you have for things that aren't this guy's fault? It's staggering, I don't know how you keep it all straight, but I'm assuming some sort of spreadsheet. It would be a tiring and pointless exercise for me to engage in that sort of behavior, but clearly you get something out of it, so different strokes, I guess.
I just think that the fact that there's a list that long of things that need excuses speaks volumes as it is...
There's a difference between a "fact" and an "opinion that you agree with."

And you'll find reasons to criticize Greenberg as long as he's here. You've assigned claims to me that are false, but that's certainly not the first time, nor will it be the last. You and I won't agree on this matter, so no need to pointlessly argue with you. Enjoy your day.
Is this an indication he is missing his brother's calming influence?
Calling CSG's work at VT over the last 9 years a mistake is just plain craziness...and that's being nice.
