Seth Greenberg has agreed to terms on a new deal with Virginia Tech that effectively eliminates him as a candidate at St. John's, the school announced Friday.

“I am pleased that Coach Greenberg will continue his mission at Virginia Tech and will lead the Hokies for the next six seasons,” said Virginia Tech athletic director Jim Weaver. “He has done an outstanding job in creating a program and environment that has the Hokies competitive year in and year out in the ACC. Under Coach Greenberg’s tutelage, the Hokies have the fourth-best regular season record in the ACC and he has created one of the best programs in the country.”

Greenberg has spent seven seasons at Virginia Tech.

He has a 132-94 record in that span.

Greenberg has done a pretty good job rebuilding the basketball program at VA Tech.  Lets be honest when Weaver says "the Hokies have the fourth-best regular season record in the ACC and he has created one of the best programs in the country" is laughable to say the least and really speaks of the strength of the ACC.  Ok, he has scheduled cupcakes to build a winning record and now its time to play some real teams.  You can't cry every season when your not selected for the Big Tournament if you play teams ranked below 200--

If you really want to build up your team's RPI, don't play any other teams from Virginia. Schedule Tennessee, Kentucky, Syracuse, etc. These would all be regional games without a lot of travel. Win or loose to these teams and your RPI goes up. If you're gonna schedule somebody think big, not teams that you might get another win from!!

I for one am glad Seth G is staying in Blacksburg.  VT was awful before Seth arrived, and although we haven't been to many NCAA's VT has been very competitive in the ACC.  Next year we return everyone except reserve Lewis Witcher.  We do need to upgrade the schedule and I hope Greenberg and Weaver are paying attention to how the committee views a poor OOC schedule.  Looking forward to another 25+ win season next year, and lets hope we are playing in the real tournament.

I absolutely agree...the State of Virginia has plenty of other quality teams who would be great RPI building non-conference opponents. How about playing some teams such as Richmond, Old Dominion, Virginia Commonwealth and George Mason (all of which have made the NCAA tourney on a pretty regular basis), or even William & Mary who was a solid team this season and ended up in the NIT.

Playing Radford makes sense because they are only 10 miles away and Greenberg's brother is the head coach. But dump these other RPI killers like Longwood, VMI, NC Central, UMBC and Charleston Southern.

Good to hear.  Virginia Tech wasn't much without him.  Even though they have only made the NCAA tourney once in 7 years, lately they have been a bubble team.  That was unheard of before Greenburg.

Weaver's overselling it a bit, isn't he?  The "best programs in the country" usually make the NCAA Tournament more than once in seven years.

Greenberg also never led South Florida to the NCAA Tournament.  He's a solid coach, but average.

Now he just needs to upgrade that non-confrence schedule.  Too many times he has been left outside of the dance...time to mke a change.  Getting 25 wins is fine, but you need tought competetion than Longwood, Charlestown Southern, VMI and UMBC.  Otherwise, this trend will continue.
