The Virginia Tech men's basketball team hired Buzz Williams as its new head coach Friday.

Williams coached the past six seasons at Marquette, leading the Eagles to a record of 139-65 and five trips to the NCAA Tournament.

The 41 year-old coach replaces James Johnson, who was fired after winning just 22 games in two years at Virginia Tech.

Williams' contract with the Hokies is reportedly worth $18 million over seven years.
