VT's Wolff going back to men's bb?

ESPN's Andy Katz reports that former Virginia Tech assistant James Johnson, who left for Clemson less than two weeks ago, is returning to Blacksburg as its head coach, which is interesting. But of much greater interest, at least to us, is Katz' speculation that Johnson "may look to add Virginia Tech's women's coach Dennis Wolff to the staff as an associate head coach." Wolff was the men's director of basketball operations on the staff that included Johnson two years ago before landing the women's gig.

We're just passing this along - without comment for now - because it's merely speculation. Besides, coaches get offered jobs all the time. Doesn't mean they'll accept. But if this is indeed the way things go down, both Wolff and especially Tech athletic director Jim Weaver will have a whole lot of 'splainin' to do, Lucy.

UPDATE: A little before 2 p.m. Monday, Hokies assistant coach Chantelle Anderson tweeted the following:

"Virginia Tech Head Coach, Dennis Wolff, IS NOT going back to the men's side to be a coach! He's staying right here!!!"

  1. Chantelle- Good! Kill this rumor right now. If Wolfe goes to Men's program, Weaver would have to hire super replacement.
