Friday Q&A: March 21, 2014


1) Realistically, when is the next basketball coach announced?

Chris Coleman: Between now and the end of the Final Four. That’s the best answer I can give you. If Whit Babcock finds a guy next week who he feels is the perfect fit, he might end the search right then and there. But it might not happen until the next week, or perhaps the week after.

Most of Virginia Tech’s coaching targets are playing postseason basketball, and those coaches won’t be able to interview with Whit Babcock until they are eliminated. Donnie Tyndall and Mike White’s teams are still alive in the NIT, and there could be coaches in the NCAA Tournament that Whit Babcock wants to pursue as well.
