Bill Courtney hired by Cornell
Virginia Tech assistant coach Bill Courtney was hired as the next coach at Cornell, becoming the second member from the Hokies' staff to leave program this offseason.
Courtney said in a text message that he would be introduced at Cornell at 3 p.m on Friday. Courtney replaces Steve Donahue, who led Cornell to the NCAA tournament's Round of 16 in March before leaving to take over at Boston College.
The move adds some instability to Virginia Tech's program and leaves it without a talented recruiter. Coach Seth Greenberg will have to replace two of his three assistant coaches. Also, Ryan Odom left in April to take an assistant coaching job at Charlotte.
Courtney, 39, has never previously been a head coach. Courtney, who interviewed at Cornell last week, has been at Virginia Tech since June 2009. He previously has been an assistant coach at Virginia and George Mason, among other stops, where he burnished a reputation as a strong recruiter.
