BLACKSBURG – Head coach Justin Fuente confirmed Thursday that secondary coach Torrian Gray will join his staff at Virginia Tech after previously serving under Frank Beamer.

Gray, who played at Tech from 1992-96 and spent three seasons in the NFL, joined Beamer’s staff in 2006 and has helped build a tradition of tremendous play in the Hokies’ secondary. Under his watch, five Tech players have earned All-America honors, including Kendall Fuller last season. The list also includes Kyle Fuller, Jayron Hosley, Macho Harris and Brandon Flowers. Kyle Fuller, Hosley and Flowers are playing in the NFL, while Harris is playing in the Canadian Football League.

Under Gray, the Hokies have finished in the top 15 nationally in pass efficiency defense in eight of his 10 seasons. They finished in the top 15 nationally three times in pass defense. Since 1996, no FBS team has more interceptions (337) and interception returns for touchdowns (44) than the Hokies, of which Gray has played a role since coming aboard in 2006.

Fuente announced Monday that James Shibest and Holman Wiggins would be coming from Memphis to join his staff at Tech as well. Shibest and Wiggins are currently going through the Virginia Tech hiring process. Other additions to Coach Fuente’s staff will be announced as they are finalized.

    1. I’m telling my UGa office mate that Shane’s going to work for Smart in Athens – it’s killing him.

      1. Funny, my USCe buddy says their problems STARTED when Shane left..as long as he isn’t RB cvoach, UGa could do a HELL of a lot worse. He is a proven SEC recruited

  1. I assume the keep Wiles and MAYBE Stiney for recruiting reasons. However, I rather they replace Stiney with a younger coach with similar ties to the 757

      1. I’m more concerned with where Stiney goes as he’s a very good recruiter with great contacts and ties to the 757. If UVA, PSU, MD or any of the NC schools scoops him up it could be very interesting in a bad way.

  2. Gray played a role in Virginia Tech INTs starting in 1993, not 2006! He led the team in both 1993 and 1994.
