Today is the day that the Virginia Tech Hokies will formally introduce Buzz Williams as the new head coach of the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team. This might just be the biggest press conference in Virginia Tech athletic history which is why the press conference will actually take place on the floor at Cassell Coliseum. Admission is free to the press conference and Cassell Coliseum will open at 5:00 P.M. before the start of the press conference one hour later at 6:00 P.M. If you can’t be at the press conference, you can go to hokiesports.com for live streaming of this press conference.
There will likely be a lot of questions for Buzz Williams but expect him to be asked about why he left Marquette and asked about the departure of Trevor Thompson. Buzz Williams is a high character guy and I would expect him to either answer both those questions or dodge them to avoid disrespecting the other. This has the potential to be somewhat interesting or the more likely standard procedure of press conferences like this. However, it is a great day for Virginia Tech basketball with the formal announcement of Buzz Williams as the Hokies new men’s basketball head coach.
