Rob Ehsan is leaving his job as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Virginia Tech to become an assistant at Conference USA member Alabama-Birmingham, Tech associate athletic director Tom Gabbard said Monday.
UAB hired Jerood Haase, previously a North Carolina assistant, as its head coach last week. Gabbard said Ehsan and Haase had planned to work together the last time Haase was in the running for a head-coaching job, but Haase did not get the position that time.
This season was Ehsan’s first on coach Seth Greenberg’s staff. He previously had been an assistant at Maryland.
This is the fourth straight year that one of Greenberg’s assistant coaches is leaving to become an assistant at another school.
Jeff Wulbrun, who served as Greenberg’s director of basketball operations this year, is also leaving for UAB. His new job will be a move up to assistant coach. This was also Wulbrun’s first year on the Tech staff.
