Virginia Tech made waves during one of the busiest college basketball days of the year yesterday with the surprising hire of Marquette head coach Buzz Williams. Snatching Williams out of Milwaukee is an excellent move for the last-place ACC program, and Virginia Tech deserves credit for making what looks like a good hire. What they won’t be getting credit for? Hokiesports.com flubbed Williams’ new staff directory profile big time.

The picture has since been fixed, but the first edition of the story included a photo of former Marquette assistant Scott Monarch, who now works as an assistant at North Texas. Not every bald former Marquette coach is Buzz Williams, guys.
Virginia Tech has since fixed the website, but not before screenshots of the original made their way around Twitter. This will all be moot by the time Williams coaches his first game in Blacksburg, but its quite a gaffe to open up what should be a very interesting tenure.
