The news of Young’s hiring comes less than a week after former Hokies head coach Buzz Williams took the coaching job at Texas A&M. Williams was 100-69 in five seasons at Virginia Tech and brought the Hokies to the Sweet 16 in 2019. The pursuit of Young also came on the heels of the news that Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard, who Virginia Tech had targeted for its vacancy, would be staying with the Pirates.

As a result, he was named Sporting News Coach of the Year.
