The departure of Seth Greenberg surprised many, including Greenberg who told reporters who were inquiring about the purpose of the press conference that he was still employed.  That, of course, turned out to only be true for so long.  Now that Greenberg is gone, what lies ahead of the Hokies and who might be hired?

First, firing a coach often has negative effects on recruiting.  TechHoops.com looks at two of those recruits who might be changing their plans

GobblerCountry.com speculates on who the Hokies may be targetting as their next head coach.

Today, we've learned Virginia Tech is interested in at least two ACC assistants.  Namely, NC State's Bobby Lutz and UNC's Steve Robinson.  Here's more from the Washington Post.

One such person is North Carolina State associate head coach Bobby Lutz, who met with Virginia Tech officials Thursday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C., according to multiple people familiar with the coaching search who were granted anonymity to speak freely.

Two people close to Lutz said there is mutual interest between the two sides, in part because of Lutz’s previous head coaching experience.

...

According to three people with knowledge of the situation, Virginia Tech Athletic Director Jim Weaver approached Smart earlier in the week to gauge his interest in the job. But Smart, who reportedly turned down overtures from North Carolina State last offseason and Illinois this year, is not interested in leaving VCU at this time.

...

Several coaches have reached out to Virginia Tech in some fashion – either directly or through a third party — to express their interest in the job, or were recommended as possible candidates to Virginia Tech.

They include Loyola’s Jimmy Patsos, American’s Jeff Jones, Eastern Michigan’s Rob Murphy and North Carolina assistant Steve Robinson, according to multiple people familiar with the situation. However, on Friday an American University spokeswoman said Jones has denied any interest in the Virginia Tech job.
