Bobby Lutz Won't Comment On Virginia Tech Rumors

As you have most likely heard by now, a report from the Washington Post this morning indicates that there is mutual interest between Virginia Tech and NC State assistant Bobby Lutz. Lutz apparently met with VT officials in Greensboro on Thursday.

Virginia Tech hasn’t identified its next men’s basketball coach yet, but school officials have been busy speaking with prospective candidates since Monday’s news conference announcing Seth Greenberg’s firing.

One such person is North Carolina State associate head coach Bobby Lutz, who met with Virginia Tech officials Thursday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C., according to multiple people familiar with the coaching search who were granted anonymity to speak freely.

Later Friday afternoon, Jeff Gravley reached out to Lutz for a comment.

So you're saying the report is true.

Okay, well, we knew this was going to happen at some point with Lutz, but I thought we might be safe for at least one more year. The Virginia Tech job is a good fit for him, though, since it allows him to stay in the region and he won't be faced with heavy expectations from the outset.

Back to wait-and-see mode, everyone. Given the names presented in that Post update, I have to think Lutz is near the top of Tech's list. Though I think they'd be wise to give Jimmy Patsos a long look.
