CMY Rounds Out Support Staff

Virginia Tech head men's basketball coach Mike Young announced Monday the additions of six support staff personnel, including chief of staff Stephanie Ballein, special assistant to the head coach Kevin Giltner, special assistant for recruiting Matt Olinger, senior director of strength and conditioning David Land and director of sports medicine Hisham Ziyout, while retaining director of player personnel Ryan Nadeau.

"This staff will allow us to operate at an extremely high level," Young said. "Their range of experience and knowledge will greatly impact every aspect of our program. They are bright, intelligent and have an outstanding work ethic. More importantly, they will assist our student-athletes in every phase of their lives.

Support staff? Cool now I know who to blame every time something goes wrong. /s

If KBJ doesn't come back, it is their fault.

I assume Stephanie Ballein is John's daughter or daughter-in-law? I like that Hisham Z is a move from the football team as the S&C program over there seems to be improving. Also retaining Nadeau for advanced analytics is reassuring after CMY's comments about his ignorance of the topic.

Whatever. It was one bad year.
