Hokies in holding pattern
Virginia Tech is in a bizarre holding pattern at the moment.
Possible changes to the coaching staff seem like they might be on hold for now, at least until the American Football Coaches Association’s convention Jan. 6-9 in Nashville, Tenn., where it’s possible coach Frank Beamer could talk to a number of potential candidates in one location.
As for the report that Kevin Sherman will be heading to Purdue, new Boilermakers coach Darrell Hazell decided to stick with Kent State through the GoDaddy.com Bowl in Mobile against Arkansas State, which is Sunday. It would be surprising in his dual coaching role if Hazell made any official staff announcements before then.
Then there are the three players who are considering their NFL options — Logan Thomas, James Gayle and Antone Exum. All three have gotten their feedback from the NFL Draft Advisory Board. Now they have until Jan. 15 to enter their name in the draft, presumably after some discussion with trusted family and friends.
