Dennis Wolff to take over at Virginia Tech

Multiple sources, including AAU guru Boo Williams and Daily Press columnist David Teel, have said that Dennis Wolff will be the next head coach of the Virginia Tech women's team.

UConn graduate Wolff, 56, is the current Director of Operations for Tech men's coach Seth Greenberg. He's well overqualified for that job, having served as men's coach at Boston University for 15 years, leading the Terriers to two NCAA Tournament appearances and three NIT appearances. Wolff was named the America East Coach of the Year in 1997, 2003, 2004, the NABC District I Coach of the Year in 1997 and 2004 and the New England Division I Coach of the Year in 1997 and 2004. He won a school record 247 games at BU before being fired in March 2009 after the Terriers lost in the first round of the America East Tournament. The former Virginia men's assistant to Jeff Jones was hired by Tech as director of operations last June.

Wolff's daughter, Nicole, the 2002 McDonald's National Player of the Year, was plagued by injuries during her four years at UConn.

So far official Tech sources are mum.
