Seth Greenberg Out At Vt

23 posts in this topic

Greenberg is an excellent on-air personality and a really great interview from the few I've heard.

However, it's about 3 years too late for his dismissal at Tech. He is a guy who needs to be in a small, mid major school to maximize his recruiting abilities. A place like Winthrop would be an excellent destination for him IMHO.

It should be noted that VT is and always will be a football school and SG did a decent job of making them relevant again in one of the premiere conferences in the country. He also did a good job of creating a pipeline to the Charlotte area basketball players. I'm sure UNCC athletics are happy to see him go.

We lost several players to VT and Clemson. We'd get on them early and end up in their "top 3" and then one of those two schools, or both, would jump into the picture and ****** them away.

We haven't really gone up against those two schools much lately. Our new staff is big on recruiting GA.

Bobby Lutz

Yeah Lutz has got to be on their radar as well. I'd stay at State this year though if I were Bobby. He just got a big promotion and pay raise, and on paper State is a borderline NC contender. He could have his pick of good jobs if he sticks around in Raleigh for one more season.

Bobby Lutz

They just fired a coach that could occasionally win big games and blow games that should be easy wins.

Few can grab defeat from the jaws of victory like Greenburg and Bobby Lutz.

Lutz is better suited as an assistant. He's in a good spot and he's getting paid a good salary to be there.

It won't be Lutz. I'd be pissed if it was. I met the man, nice guy, but not an ACC head coach. I'd like Smart - but I think he stays at VCU. Seth put VT on the basketball map well after the days of Dell Curry, Bimbo Coles and Allan Bristow. He was great for this program. Another nice guy - I met him when I was an undergrad at Tech, but he shot himself in the foot the day he said 'You'd have to be certifiably insane to not have VT in the tourney'. The committee doesn't like that stuff and shafted us for years. He has 2 of the better recruiting classes the last 2 years and I hope no one transfers bc of his firing.

Side note: I ran into Jamon Gordon the day after we lost to the Salukis in the 2nd round of the '07 NCAA tourney at the Terrace View administrative building. Nicest guy in the world. Told me Seth was hands down the best coach he has ever had.

I think Chris Mooney or Blaine Taylor would be good pickups for VT.

They've both proven to be more successful than Greenburg in Virginia despite playing in conferences that are much harder to recruit to.

Smart is not a realistic option.

I'm ok with Blaine but they just shifted around people to make room for Richardson (VT assistant) not sure after all that they all leave, but I'd be Ok with it. Mooney is a different story for me, was bad enough watching Seth's offense I think it would be just as bad with him trying to run his Princeton offense in ACC. Plus Mooney signed a 10 year extension with Richmond? With it being a private school who knows what that buyout is.

Patsos from Loyola could also be interesting. The deal is its gonna be someone who's worth around 1.5 a year.. I do feel Weaver won't scale back. Seth made 1.2m , he will spend that or more up to 1.5.

Erick Green said he would think about transferring if the new coach ran the princeton. If weaver has any sort of dignity left or smarts, he would make sure the new coach is compatible with the recruits. We're already on the edge of losing some good recruits. At least now they have less time to find a new suitor. A true dick move artist really. It's definitely going to affect recruiting knowing that our AD is a certified assrabbit.

At least your AD let you know with plenty of advance notice that you have no shot at the NCAA tournament next year.

Seth liked to tease you guys for the entire year.

Yeah, that's what Alan Majors' philosophy is. They should fire Major immediately and hire Greenberg. At least Greenberg can recruit.
