Will the Firing of James Johnson Affect the Status of VT Signee Justin Bibbs?

After a 1-17 stretch to end the season, Virginia Tech parted ways with head coach James Johnson on Monday, marking the end of Johnson’s two-year stint at the helm of the program. An assistant on Seth Greenberg’s staff from 2007 to 2012, Johnson took over in May of 2012, leading the Hokies to a 13-19 record in his first year on the job. The loss of Erick Green, the 2013 ACC Player...

Virginia Tech's James Johnson is the first ACC coach to go

After just two seasons on the job, Tech has fired James Johnson. He compiled a 22-41 record, winning just six games in the ACC. If you recall, Johnson actually accepted a job at Clemson, before being hired back less than two weeks later. I have to be honest, I’m not sure what Virginia Tech expected when they fired Seth Greenberg and hired his assistant, James Johnson. If you recall...

The case for Erick Green

Throughout the years the post season awards for the ACC have been.... interesting. Where you play seems to have as much affect as how you play. This year seems to be no different when it comes to the conference player of the year. There's a widespread notion that POY awards are actually POYFRGT awards (Player of the Year From a Really Good Team). And herein lies the problem...

Position rankings: ACC point guards

1. Erick Green, Sr., Virginia Tech. If Green played in the triangle there'd be no question who the best point guard in the ACC is. But this is the ACC, and so Green flies mostly under the radar.
