Report: Seth Greenberg out at Virginia Tech

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Virginia Tech is having a news conference at 4 p.m. and it could mark the end of Seth Greenberg's tenure with the Hokies.

The rumors have run rampant. David Teel of the Newport News Daily Press has reported that the newser is about a change in head men's basketball coach.

CBSSports.com has been unable to confirm the report.

Greenberg told CBSSports.com that he was unaware of what the news conference was about when reached about 1:30 p.m. ET on Monday afternoon.

Greenberg, 56, has been the head coach in Blacksburg for the past nine seasons and has amassed a 167-117 mark in his time. He has led the Hokies to one NCAA tournament appearance and has gone to the NIT five times.

Virginia Tech was on the bubble four consecutive years -- from 2008 to 20011 -- but couldn't get into the NCAA tourney.

Greenberg has had no shortage of turnover on his staff. This season all three of his assistants have left -- as well as his director of basketball operations. James Johnson left for Clemson, John Richardson is returning to Old Dominion and Robert Ehsan and director of basketball operations Jeff Wulbrun both left for UAB.

Greenberg, a New York native, was previously the head coach at Long Beach State and South Florida.
