Brent Pry named as Virginia Tech's head football coach
The former Penn State defensive coordinator was a graduate assistant under former Hokie great Frank Beamer in the 90's.
Pry has been with Penn State since 2014. He led the Nittany Lions to a top-five defense in the Big Ten every year he was there.
Virginia Tech officials say current interim coach J.C. Price — who just led the school to a defeat over in-state rival Virginia this past weekend — will stay on staff as the team's associate head coach.
Tech and former head coach Justin Fuente parted ways earlier this month.
Pry will be formally introduced at a press conference Thursday morning at 9am.
