Actually he hit some cultural mgt. challenges

Vt was operated by Mosley and Claiborne defined the vt style . Tough defense run and ball possession special teams .
Coffey wanted to transform vt to offensive minded pass happy highly marketed program - a lot like tenn and Arkansas where came ..there was a move to push old guy Mosley and replace with another high marketing ad chuck rohe. Think hot pants cheerleaders at msg for the nit. That didn’t happen/ the good ole boys got rohe out Coffey out/ Mosley and his asst bill Matthews went back to their mentor bear Bryant and he recommended Jimmie sharp . Well we went wishbone and really went no where. So the program languished and in 1978 and bov wanted to raise the bar so they went after Dooley - At that time - dooley had a great program at unc basically made of Virginia recruits especially from 757. -,at that time only 2,-area codes 804. He would come if vt would give him ad. Vt did; and rest good or bad enveloped ..
Right now vt athletic administration is probably the best the university has ever had....key is not harp on pass and forget it- just move on with fantastic future
