Fuente out as Virginia Tech head coach


After 6 seasons as the head coach of the Virginia Tech Hokies football team, and being the 2016 ACC coach of the year, Justin Fuente is now out of a job. It was determined that at this time a need arose to make a change in coaching staff, and J.C. Price will take over the lead job as head coach. The Associated Press has the story:

Virginia Tech Athletic director Whit Babcock made the press announcement on Tuesday of the coaching change

In a statement, athletic director Whit Babcock said co-defensive line coach and recruiting coordinator J.C. Price will lead the Hokies through their final two regular season games.

Fuente was 43-31 record in Blacksburg, Virginia. The Hokies (5-5) travel to Miami on Saturday and close the season at Virginia.

“While it is never easy to make a change, I believe in order for our football program to attain the type of sustained success that is expected at Virginia Tech, the time was right for new leadership of our football program,” Babcock said.

He said the program “is one of the most attractive football jobs in America.”
