BFeldmanCBS: Va. Tech has hired former Auburn asst. Scot Loeffler as Hokies new OC, a source just told CBS.
Nooooo! I wanted Chuck Long!!! Off to the bridge I go!
beat me to it....upvote!
How is it that Feldman is the one that breaks the official news on this one? You would think one of the VT beat writers wouldve broken it and Feldman would be retweeting.
If he brings Grimes that is one hell of a recruiting kick... those guys are studs.
Could we start landing recruiting classes ranked in the top 10?
No. They'll just get overtaken at the end of the year by SEC/Texas/USC/ND commits and SEC/Texas/USC/ND almost commits.

Bruce has connection with Loefflers agent that local writers do not would be my guess.
The crop isn't as strong since Kyle Tucker and Darryl Slater left for greener pasteurs. A lot of folks didn't like them, for whatever reasons, but they were very good at their jobs and that's why they landed SEC gigs. Now Gianatto is spread across two jobs (VT and UVA) and Bitter has only been on the VT beat for a year or so. Other than that it's local TV, the CT and blogs.
What did you want? We're not getting a huge exposé on a 7-6 ACC team's new OC. ESPN does a lot of things that piss me off, but this isn't something to complain about considering they are a national outlet.
Most assistant coaching changes aren't reported by them because they realize their college football coverage is sub-par. In other words, they can't break the stories so they typically bury them online. CBS will have something more in-depth because they rely on college football reporting rather than college football broadcasting. For example, Sean Bielawski is over at CBS for the ACC (former ESPN Blacksburg) and has more talent in his finger than Heather Dinich.
ESPN has their business model and it's not intended to be a premier news organization. Heck "entertainment" is in the name.
