Longtime head coach Frank Beamer is no longer on the sideline in Blacksburg, Virginia. The 69-year-old North Carolina native will still be active at the Institute as special assistant to the Athletic Director.
Enter former Memphis Tigers coach Justin Fuente, who did a masterful job with the football program in basketball-crazed Memphis.
Fuente is an offensive genius and will have the luxury of recruiting five-star high school football players. Fuente did a great job developing first round draft choice and quarterback Paxton Lynch.
The Virginia Tech athletic department believes Fuente will have the Hokies in the hunt for an ACC title this season.
The Virginia Tech offense has a chance if excel if they grasp the concepts of Fuente this season.
Junior College transfer Jerod Evans is the favorite to become the starter under center to begin the season.
Virginia Tech has had their trouble putting points on the scoreboard the past few seasons. However, Fuente has a proven track record, and the Hokies will thrill fans with their new system.
Although, the team put up an average of thirty-one points per contest last season. They ranked near the bottom of the nation in rushing, passing and total yards.
Running Back Travon McMillian, over 1,000 yards rushing in his first season at “VA TECH” is back.
Fullback Sam Rogers can do it all out of the backfield and is one of the best in the land at his position.
Isaiah Ford and Cam Phillips plus tight end Bucky Hodges return which makes the Hokies offense one of the most talented in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Four experienced players return on the offensive line. Watch out ACC. Virginia Tech has a date with Tennessee early in the season.
The Hokies will travel to Notre Dame late in November in their out of conference schedule.
Longtime Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster will be on the sidelines again this season.
Fuente did an excellent job in keeping Foster in place, and they are on the same page. Foster and his “LUNCH PAIL” defense has been the staple of the Virginia Tech football program for a decade.
The pass defense ranked 19th in the nation last season but losses All-American Kendall Fuller at cornerback.
Also gone is “STUD” defensive tackle Luther Maddy and End Dadi Nicolas. Foster has talent with Ken Ekanem and Woody Baron in the trenches.
Linebacker could be a position the Hokies struggle, in particular against the pass.
Cornerbacks Brandon Facyson and Greg Stroman have next level talent. Fuller was hurt a lot last season, and many players saw a lot of action in the secondary.
