In hardly what could be deemed as a surprise, Virginia Tech has fired Dennis Wolff, according to multiple reports. Wollf, who came from the men's side, struggled mightily in his time with the Hokies.

The Director of Athletics, Whit Babcock at Virginia Tech, announced the firing of Wolff on Tuesday. Babcock and staff will start a national search to fill the vacancy immediately.

Babcock had this to say on the departure of Wolff, “I want to thank Coach Wolff for his perseverance and hard work for our university and our basketball program over the past five years,” Babcock said. “We appreciate the foundation that Coach Wolff and his staff have built at Virginia Tech.

While the search starts, Babcock said the team and university leadership will be kept informed about the process of bringing in a new coach.

This was the fifth season the Hokies had Wolff as their leader. This past year the Hokies had an overall record of 18-14 and going 5-11 in the ACC. For his career at Virginia Tech, Wolff compiled a record of 62-93, plus 17-65 in conference play.

In the meantime, Britney Anderson has been appointed interim head coach. In 2015Anderson joined the coaching staff; she was a member of the Virginia Tech women’s basketball team from 2003-2007.
