Huge, exciting news.

Here's the story

Welcome home coach, please let our QB's make reads and don't dictate their every move!

1-0 every week

I saw he worked with Armanti Edwards at App St. I'm down with this.

I played for App when Coach Glenn was there. He's a great coach and developed several playmakers at that position. Great news for the Hokies!

Go Hokies

These offenses were solid at Georgia State

I like this part:

In 2019, Georgia State's offense rewrote a good portion of the school's record book with new marks in points, scoring average,, total offense, total offense per game, rushing yards, rushing yards per game and per attempt and first downs.

Glenn earned a nomination for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.

No P5 experience though. Trash hire /s

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

With all those rushing records how we gonna hire him as passing game coordinator

Probably because he's been an OC and a QB coach for the past 13 years.

Seneca, SC native and Clemson grad. Not relevant to his coaching quality, but an interesting tidbit for me personally as an upstate SC resident.

This seems like a really strong hire at a glance.

I mean it could be relevant though. He might still have recruiting connections in SC as a result.

That's a good point. I would imagine he has Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina connections (at least) based off time spent at Western Carolina, App State, and Georgia State as well.

Man, I am going to do my best to trust Brent Pry until proven otherwise and I know a lot of baseball players also play QB but I'm not seeing how this works out.

Does he whisper?

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

When he yells, it's never above his "inside voice."

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

We probably will see another coach or two announcement soon now that NSD is over. Unless all the other guys truly are in the NFL.

whats the reason to wait?

Danny is always open

Position coaches jumping right after signing day is pretty common. Basically not to tank the current schools recruiting class by leaving right before signing day.

Has OC experience was a Broyles nominee and coached a QB to the Walter Payton Award while another 5 were on the watchlist under him.

Hard to argue against this one.

(add if applicable) /s

There are those who will, rest assured.

Did I block out a loss to Appy State that year?

Yeah I'm confused here too VT has never lost to App St

JMU, App State

basically the same thing

Same weekend, I think

Correction: it was the other purple team we lost to

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Come on guys, he's referring to University of Michigan at Abingdon, Virginia

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

His decision was made after a phone call with longtime Virginia Tech assistant coach Bud Foster. All Foster told him was, "We win. They don't."

My bad. JMU but don't ever admit that.

If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is probably not for you.

Think you might be thinking about our JMU loss, bc we definitely haven't ever lost to App State and didn't play them in 2010 haha...we did play them in 2011 (which I think is the only time we've played them in recent history), but we beat them 66-14

JMU? SWVA?

I know the extent of what's considered NOVA keeps creeping south, but when did SWVA start creeping north?

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

As a non-Virginian, SWVA is a catch all for rural VA. Basically anything other than NoVA, Richmond, or the 757 is SWVA.

Twitter me

So I am from the Lynchburg area, and I had never even heard of the term NOVA until I got to VT in 95. When I had asked people where they were from as a freshman and they said "NOVA" I thought they might have been from Nova Scotia or something.

I'm from northern Virginia and I never heard the term NOVA until I went to Tech, also in 95. NOVA is Northern Virginia Community College. People kept asking if I was from NOVA and I was like no, I'm not a transfer student. I didn't know a single person from NOVA who called it NOVA.

Old Hokie here....
But my first NOVA exposure was freshman year looking at the ride bulletin boards. (Yes, it was a thing)
Most were ride requests to 'NOVA'.
(I thought it was some city unknown to me that 80% of VT students came from).

I can relate... We had ride boards at Longwood too.
It was always weird to me when I would ask people where they were from, there'd be the people "Oh I'm from Danville, Richmond, Lynchburg, etc." then you get the people from NOVA they were never from an actual place just NOVA..

Before I met Hokieenginerd, I dated a guy from NOVA and called his house once, the message his mother gave him was "Some girl with a Southern accent called."

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Yeah, it always bothered me that people would say Nova instead of a city name. It was like every city was a soulless copy of the city next to it so it didn't matter which one they were from. I get it, but it was shocking at first.

I've rarely said NOVA, if nothing else, I don't feel like I fit the stereotype of those kids. I'm always from my city.

A lot of the people said "Northern Virginia" which is still not an actual place...

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Yeah, I get that. I always went with the county/city. I prefer the other parts of the state anyway. Although I will agree that my perception of SW VA is definitely quite different than the folks from central, south and southwest parts. Until I worked a job where I had to travel down there, I didn't realize how far Big Stone Gap, Ewing, and even like Wytheville, Marion, Patrick County, and Bristol were

I eventually adapted to respond with "northern Virginia" whenever people asked where I was from after a thousand conversations that went like this:

Person: "where are you from?"
Me: "Fairfax Station."
Person: "where's that?"
Me: "near Fairfax."
Person: "where's Fairfax?"
Me: "it's in Fairfax county."
Person: *blank stare*
Me: "I'm from northern Virginia."
Person: "oh you're from Nova!"

Exactly. If I'm talking to someone from the area, I live in Leesburg. Someone from elsewhere in the US, I live in Northern VA. To someone from outside the US, I live in the Washington DC area.

Me: "Bassett."
Person: *blank stare*
Me: "Know Bassett Furniture? That Bassett."
Now, this went one of two ways:
Person: "Ohhh! Ok! No idea where that is!"
Or
Person: "no."
Me: "Know NASCAR? We're five minutes from Martinsville Speedway."
Person: "I've heard of that! No idea where that is!"

As someone from Henry County who still has family there, I heartily second this emotion. H_ighlander_okie you have already won at life. You got out (and have seemingly stayed out). No meager accomplishment that.

Sadly, I know exactly where you are talking about, but thankfully Beard's comment applies.

It was like every city was a soulless copy of the city next to it so it didn't matter which one they were from.

As someone born, raised, and stuck in NOVA - this is fairly accurate.

This whole NOVA discussion seems odd to me. All through high school, NOVA is what we called Northern Virginia Community College. If people asked where you were from, you listed the city, if they didn't know where that was, you said northern VA. Their website even says NOVA in the upper corner.

I thought NOVA was just a PBS TV show program.

I get that to an extent but calling something north of Charlottesville, SWVA, is getting wildly liberal with the moniker.

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

To be fair, the SWVA area code stretches far north of Charlottesville

Umm... 276 is SWVA. There are some extra counties with 540 that are in. But, 540 is far from the main area code of the region.

maybe now, but I remember when my grandparent's number changed to 540 from 703. And giles County is 100% SWVA

I remember when the entire state was 703....just get me a cane, I'm ancient.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

That and the phone wall plugs that were like 2 inches square, with four pins.

Our phone was hardwired. No plug involved.

As a kid, my house went from 703 to 540 to 276.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Yep. Couple that with the 911 addresses instead of "route 2 box 56".

And now I live in 276, work in 540, and we are getting another area code in the 540 area.

I just read that they're planning to overlay the entirety of 540 with 826.

Which to me is a dumb and lazy plan. They should have split off the DC exurbs (from Fredericksburg around to Winchester) from the rest (Waynesboro/Staunton southward).

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

shit, I always thought the whole 29 corridor was central VA

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

As someone from SWVA, we don't consider much of the state, at all, as part of SWVA. For most of us, it stops with Montgomery and Franklin county. For folks farther west, it doesn't go much past Wythe county.

From Giles. My SWVA line is Craig County's Eastern border, to Roanoke County's, to Franklin's Eastern and Southern border, to Floyd's Southern, to Carroll's Eastern border.

Roanoke is weird because the county definitely is, the city 🤷‍♂️.

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

I've always been unsure on Craig. Do they count as highlands or SWVA? Henry county is in a similar boat. Do they fit in with south side or not?

Therein lies the problem. Depends on who you talk to. I could see Craig either way, but definitely include it before Henry. And that's my perspective because, being from Giles, I think the only real differences between Craig and Giles are the river and 460.

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

Agreed. I think of VT as the gateway to SWVA. People just don't get it until you tell them that you live 3 1/2 hours southwest of Tech.

Good point

uva - the taint of the ACC

Southside VA is definitely distinct from SWVA and rural. To me that's like southeast of Roanoke/Lynchburg down to the Carolina border and runs east to I85. I also don't know how to describe the great rural area between Lynchburg/Charlottesville and the 29 corridor until you hit the greater Richmond area. That's just like no man's land VA to me.

central virginia?

gtofever

I love how the new coaches all have a previous connection to Pry but are coming from all over the east coast. Shows Pry is well liked/respected in the coaching community and has a great network.

Looks like this one isn't a direct connection to Pry, but possibly through Quinn.

I think it says the same thing though. Pry is well liked and respected.

Man, I hate to brag about this... Not only did I personally recommend that Whit hire Coach Pry, but I also recommended Brad Glenn as a potential OC with a REALLY fun to watch and effective offense (unless Pry does bad, in which case I definitely did not make these predictions).

I'm pumped about this hire. I live in Atlanta, have watched a few quarters of multiple GA st games, and I like this offense. It's fun to watch. This year was not the best for Glenn, but his previous 2 seasons were pretty stellar. You'll see Glenn run traditional option plays, read options, designed QB runs, and then go over the top of the defense (I'm not a scheme guy, so that's the best I can do to describe his offense). From what I've seen/read, he likes to pull players from deep in the rotation, prioritizing depth at every position (not just running back).

Big day for VT IMO - for the first time I can remember, we hand picked one of the top up-and-coming coordinators, then went out and got them.

So what's your position inside the athletic department?

I donate $25/month, and in return Whit reads my TKP posts.

Yeah, if Hand and Bowen are OL and OC (respectively) this offense could be really hard to handle. I'm indifferent to scheme / technique / style, but these guys all seem to have really interesting backgrounds, know wtf they are doing, and be upwardly mobile in the industry.

EDIT: That last part seems really important to me.

Are we sure this isn't Brent Pry's account?

For some reason, someone decided we didn't want to do that anymore.

Probably the same person that likes the new academic logo

I like how you phrased that with "person." As in the 1 person that actually likes it.

Being in market research business consulting - where we often do logo, messaging and ad concept testing for things - I would love to know how much time and money was spent coming up with that logo. Well, actually, maybe I don't really want to know.

Worst part was the press releases trying to explain what the logo signified. Had not read that much powder-puff gobbledygook in a long time. I mean it made hard, smart, tough sound cool and logical.

Recovering scientist working in business consulting

That person brings more GRiT to the table than the rest of us.

Honestly the logo makes me angry and I see it on so many things now. Like either adopt the athletics logo for the entire university or make the two logos completely different (like I don't know, a very important and meaningful part of campus).

The probably paid like $25 for the logo itself and the rest went to the gobbledygook.

A lot, don't have exact number but my friend was at the firm that did the work.

They should have passed the project down to the graphic design students. I would have loved working on a new one when I was there in the late 90's.

I was working at a company in the late '00s where we paid a firm ridiculous sums of money for a new logo and they basically took our old logo and turned it sideways. And we used it for like 3 years and then paid more money for a new logo which was just the name of the company with only the first letter capitalized (it used to always be in all caps). And they added a period to the end of the name in the logo only.

The time/money spent on the re-brand/new logo was made public. I believe the logo itself was $50,000 but don't have a source handy (my apologies).

It was a couple million I think to remove the previous logo and put up the new logo everywhere on and around campus.

agree. about the powder and puff and just plain BS without really saying anything. And it's going to cost over $1 million dollars - see RT link HERE. Also, I would love to find some of the initial news releases where they were discussing how they wanted to differentiate from athletics logo initially and now we end up with .... a twist on the athletic logo. complete wash.

You'll see Glenn run traditional option plays, read options, designed QB runs, and then go over the top of the defense

I've heard more mic'd ups from these new coaches that have never worn maroon and orange than I did from the staff who was here for six years. Was that on our media department or was the previous admin just that scared of people hearing anything

I hope this continues during spring ball. It will be such a massive improvement if we get some kind of insight on how things are going.

#4 is a towering QB. Talk about field of vision.

I saw GA State play earlier this season. Really impressive offensive system, good QB play and passing game. They outplayed Auburn for about 58 minutes.

Auburn got help from the refs in the last two minutes too

Hokie Club member since 2017

I'm cool with this as long as he teaches his QBs to make reads...no P5 experience but he's def more qualified than the guy we've had for the last 6 seasons.

My 13 year old daughter and 20-something year old polar bear "son" are almost as qualified to coach QBs as the guy we've had for the last 6 seasons.

Recovering scientist working in business consulting

I like these hires but...we need a Jerry-Kill type on staff. Would feel more comfortable having a coach with extensive P5 experience as a position coach and preferably as an OC. Doesn't even need to be a position coach, just an all-star analyst would suffice.

David Cutcliffe?

Would be the ultimate analyst hire. Would help spur QB recruiting momentum simply by his presence..." we have a guy on staff that coached both Manning brothers and another first-round draft pick whose sole job is to help develop QBs and give us advice on the passing game".

Unfortunately, I think he'll either retire, go somewhere for personal reasons or become an analyst wherever Arch decides to go to school.

So apparently we're just running an experiment to see what happens if you throw as many Broyles Award nominees and Finalists into a coaching room as possible.

Let me tell y'all something. I was a student at App when this guy was there coaching Armanti Edwards and boy did we have one heck of a passing attack with lots of reads and trust in an athletic QB. My roommate was a WR on those 3 peat national championship teams (including the one that beat Michigan). I've reached out for his thoughts, but I'm fired up about this hire. Let's go!!

He let us get away with a lot at App. That said, as a passing game coordinator he won't be responsible for direct player coaching so I think you should be VERY excited!!"

Pry mentioned in his presser yesterday that other coaching hires had been made but weren't public yet - seems like Glenn was one of them given he was officially announced the day after ESD.

Looks like another good hire, can't wait to see what the full staff looks like!

I watched some film of his offense. He ran an option to the short side of the field. My first thought was, uh-oh. People are going to complaint about that sort of behavior. It gained 8 yards. He then proceeded to run the EXACT SAME PLAY 3 more times in a row and once the defense adjusted, they handed off up the middle for 15. It was almost as if he noticed something was working, continued to exploit it until the defense adjusted, and then adjusted to the defenses adjustment to exploit them some more. It was quite wonderful. Hoping for offensive competence, coherence, and building off of plays to set up the offense. If he can simply do that consistently, I welcome him aboard.

I hate rude behavior in a man. Won't tolerate it.

if he doesn't magically lose this ability once he gets within the town limits of Blacksburg, we ought to do all right

Quick video of Coach Glenn's QB philosophy:

80 lay-ups

Edit: longer video of Coach Glenn with some offensive philosophy, tempo, run/pass, etc.

Coach Glenn interview

I'm pumped about this hire. Not gonna even hide it. Anyone see him as the next man in line should Bowen be successful and leave? Seems like with all of the coaches on staff there are several potential next man up scenarios should these guys not produce or move out.

Yeah, I think I am more psyched about Glenn than I am about any of the other coaches announced so far, except for maybe Pry & Price.

Wow, qb is allowed to make decisions. What is this?!

Danny is always open

So if he is going to be the Passing Game Coordinator, is there a chance we may see some sort of Co-OC situation with Bowen being the Run Game Coordinator rather than overall OC?

Since Glenn's title doesn't include "co-OC" I bet Bowen will be OC with no co-OCs. Though it sounds like Glenn will be working closely with Bowen to integrate the QBs and passing game into gameplans.
I bet we see a Joe Moorhead offense of RPOs, emphasis on the running game and TEs, and deep shots mixed with Glenn's passing philosophy: getting QBs to find and execute a bunch of layups. This has the potential to be a fun offense once there's some talent.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

The thought of the offense dominating the LOS and consistently completing 11-20 yd passes excites me.

offense dominating the LOS

This. There a lot of passing plays that open up when you are constantly getting 2nd and 5 or less.

I think an offense that consistently finds itself in 3rd-and-17 situations makes things the most interesting.

FIFY

Is coronavirus over yet?

As much as the fanbase complained about offense for years under BS, etc and wanting the more open attack. It will be nice going back to a LOS based O with an emphasis on toughness. Always been the brand of football I've enjoyed personally.

The more I read on this guy, the more I believe we'll have the best passing attack that Justin Fuente has seen at VT. /s

Meanwhile, somewhere at an obscure Christian High School near Athens, GA, a grizzled old former Hokie OC and Coach of a young MV7 is thinking, "Who the fuck is Armanti Edwards?"

Exciting to look at the credentials and accomplishments of all these new coaches. All of them seem capable of being good Coordinators or Head Coaches. Seems like a win/win as far as recruiting and developing talent goes.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!
