Barring any last minute issues, Virginia Tech has hired three new offensive football coaches, and the official announcement will come down when the proper paperwork clears the school's Human Resources office. That may be Friday or early next week, but the staff should be in place by next weekend when several top recruiting targets will be on campus.
The newest hire is Stanford assistant Aaron Moorehead, who will take over as wide receivers coach at Tech. Moorehead is a young guy at the age of 32. He played for the Indianapolis Colts for four seasons, picking up a Super Bowl ring in 2007. He also served a stint at New Mexico before heading to Stanford. He's the cousin of former North Carolina basketball star Brad Daugherty who had a long NBA career.
Once all the i's are dotted and the t's crossed, former Auburn offensive coordinator Scott Loeffler will assume the same role in Blacksburg. As we told you on Monday, Loeffler has extensive experience working with quarterbacks, including Tom Brady, Chad Henne, and Tim Tebow. He was on campus earlier this week to interview, along with Jeff Grimes who coached the offensive line at Auburn last season. Grimes will be the new line coach with the Hokies and has a stellar reputation as a recruiter.
