Virginia Tech announced director of athletics Whit Babcock has agreed in principle to a contract extension for Babcock to serve as athletic director through June 30, 2024.
"I am very thankful to Dr. Sands and the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors for this contract extension," said Babcock in a release. "My family and I love it in Blacksburg, this is home, and it is a blessing and honor to be here during such a dynamic time at Virginia Tech, both academically and athletically. I am also grateful to our staff and coaches in the athletic department who are doing an amazing job and creating such a special culture here.
"Athletic directors often get too much credit and this is certainly one of those instances. I am honored and humbled by the extension and the faith placed in us to keep the positive momentum going and we will do that," added Babcock. "We will continue to work hard to create a first-class 'student-athlete experience' and strive to make the entire Hokie Nation proud of our competitive success, now and for years to come."
