No, but wouldn't they get all their AC hires done before they made roster decisions?

The Va Tech coach is a great coach and he is doing everything that he can to figure out to put the program back on the map.  Give it a few years and that program will be a contender again!  I haven't met a player who doesn't like playing for this coach.  I am only hearing very positive things out of Blacksburg!

The coaching staff should be pretty much all set now. The only questions would be the director of ops/volunteer assistant position.

Kumar is the only AC they've announced.  I've heard Gillis being talked about as an AC/pitching coach but nothings been made public about that yet.

I’m not sure why it hasn’t been released yet, but I’m pretty positive Gillis will be joining him at Virginia Tech. The only way Gillis doesn’t go is if administration makes D’Amour keep Tincher on staff. I’d be surprised if Tincher stays, but I’m sure that is a rather touchy subject in Blacksburg.

 New was coach was asked about the current verbals/commits, his answer was '...I have no commits'. 

This according to a Va. Travel Coach. 

Been a long time coming for Va Tech. Things are getting shaken up a bit.

Heard from a Travel Coach with VTech commits:

Need to re-evaluate all commits. Don't have any money for them, need the money to find pitching...

This is a little odd.VT has 4 pitchers,1 jr.,2 soph. and invited walk on fr.

The pitching staff had the 3rd best ERA in the ACC.

D'Amour said the VT job wasn't a major rebuild had good pitching and fielding,just need to
 improve the hitting.

Hitting has been the big problem at VT for years,especially leaving RISP.
