Virginia Tech has hired one of the top mid-major coaches in the nation to replace Buzz Williams.
The Hokies announced Sunday they have scooped up Wofford coach Mike Young. Sources told CBS Sports' Matt Norlander that Young interviewed with Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock on Thursday by phone, met with Babcock again Saturday in South Carolina, and arrived in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Sunday.
The terms of the deal is $12 million over five years.
Young has been Wofford's coach since 2002, and from 1989-2002 he was on staff as an assistant coach.
Young has won at a high level with the Terriers and has taken the program, which resides in what is traditionally a one-bid league in the Southern Conference, to five NCAA Tournaments in the last decade. Young is coming off a 30-5 campaign in which Wofford achieved an 18-0 conference record and advanced to the second round of the NCAAs.
Young will succeed Williams who left to take the same position at Texas A&M. He has a 299-244 record as a coach.
The Hokies were 26-9 this season, losing to Duke in the Sweet 16.
