Former Wofford boss introduced as Virginia Tech’s new coach
By Marty Gordon
Mike Young grew up in Radford, playing basketball on the neighborhood playground. His father, Bob, who was the principal at Dalton Intermediate School, would take him to basketball camps and games at Virginia Tech.
“I have great memories of being at the Cassell, watching Tech games and feeling the building shake,” he said.
He also played high school basketball at Radford High School. He would leave to play at Emory and Henry College and spend a year as an assistant at Radford University before heading to Wofford College.
Now Young has come full circle and was introduced Monday as the new men’s basketball coach at Virginia Tech. He called the opportunity “a dream come true.”
