Moorehead Leaves Blacksburg for College Station
Virginia Tech's wide receiver coach has left the program for same position with the Texas A&M Aggies. Aaron Moorehead has been in tenure for two seasons in Blacksburg, as he was part of the offensive overhaul that the Hokies saw for the 2013 season. Moorehead did a great job this year developing freshmen Isaiah Ford and Cam Phillips into the two leading wide receivers for the Hokies.
This is good and bad news for the Hokies. The good news is that they seem to be hiring well offensively. Offensive line coach Jeff Grimes had recently left for the same position at LSU. The two SEC teams are college football powerhouses, and it is good to see that Tech has talented enough positional coaches to land those jobs. The bad news is that the Hokies have to keep finding those great positional coaches. We certainly don't see ourselves as a factory school for other top programs, and we need to find ways to keep all the important pieces together if we want to become a stalwart again. Great coaching staffs win championships.
He will be missed in Blacksburg, but I believe that Beamer should have no problem getting another good candidate due to the talent on the roster.
