Virginia Tech was in the ESPN spotlight today, but it did not come off positively. “Outside the Lines” examined the decline in the number of women coaching women’s basketball, and Tech AD Jim Weaver’s hiring of Dennis Wolff last year was criticized in a taped piece and a panel discussion. Wolff had no experience coaching women when he was plucked from his job as director of men’s basketball operations and named the women’s basketball coach. Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer said in the taped piece she was “really, really hurt” when Wolff was hired. Weaver was interviewed in the taped piece, but he again talked about how one of the factors in Wolff’s favor was that his daughter used to play for UConn. His rationale was met with scorn by VanDerveer and the panel.
