Virginia Tech Men's Basketball Introduces Buzz Williams

Posted: Updated:

Virginia Tech formally introduced it's new head coach, Buzz Williams, in front of a roaring crowd of Hokies at Cassell Coliseum.

Williams was picked up from Marquette - where he led his squad to the NCAA Tournament in five of the past six seasons.

Williams replaces James Johnson after two seasons. Johnson was fired March 17, 2014.

"I appreciate your excitement," said Williams. "I am very, very honored. Very thankful to be here. Humbled by the chance, excited for the opportunity. I think it's a sleeping giant. There's a lot of work to be done."
