Buzz Williams will leave Marquette University to become the new men’s basketball coach at Virginia Tech, Garry Parrish of CBS Sports confirms.
It’s a rarity at this level, in any sport, for a head coach to have had no playing experience in college. It hasn’t prevented Williams from guiding Marquette to the Sweet 16 the last two seasons and a 60-30 regular season record in the Big East.
Georgetown extended its winning streak to six games by defeating Marquette 63-55 at the Verizon Center on Monday night. Otto Porter Jr scored a game high 21 points as the Hoyas improved to 18-4, 8-3 in the Big East.
