Virginia Tech head football coach Justin Fuente will be retained for the 2021 season. The news leaked out on Monday night, and it was confirmed in a Tuesday afternoon press conference with Director of Athletics Whit Babcock.
Fuente has been under fire for quite awhile, most recently with a 2020 season that produced a 5-6 record and a home loss to Liberty. Fuente’s buyout dropped to $10 million on Tuesday, leading to speculation that he would be let go the day before Signing Day.
Fuente has a career record of 38-26 at Virginia Tech, with a 25-17 mark in ACC games. However, he is 19-18 over the last three seasons, along with a 14-12 conference record.
