What’s been rumored since the bowl game and known since last week finally became official: Kevin Sherman is the wide receivers coach at Purdue.
Sherman, a Radford native, spent the last seven years at Virginia Tech, but his departure, along with that of offensive line coach Curt Newsome and quarterbacks coach/play-caller Mike O’Cain has been imminent in recent weeks.
Virginia Tech has yet to officially announce any staff departures or hires, although it’s expected that Scot Loeffler will come on staff as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, Jeff Grimes as offensive coordinator and Aaron Moorehead as wide receivers coach.
It’s unclear when an officially announcement will be made.
Sherman’s impending departure was first mentioned during the Russell Athletic Bowl on Twitter by Pete Roussel of CoachingSearch.com. He departed Virginia Tech last week, according to a source, and had been working for the Boilermakers already this week.
