Roanoke Valley Sports Club is proud to welcome Virginia Tech basketball coach Mike Young as our speaker on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at the Salem Civic Center!
On April 7 this year, Virginia Tech President Dr. Tim Sands and Director of Athletics Whit Babcock announced Mike Young had accepted the men's basketball head coaching position at Virginia Tech. The Radford, Virginia native joins the Hokies after a record-setting 17-year tenure at Wofford.
The 2019 Sporting News Coach of the Year, Young finished third in this season's AP Coach of the Year voting behind Texas Tech's Chris Beard and Houston's Kelvin Sampson. In his 17 seasons at the helm as head coach of Wofford College, Young built the Terriers into one of the Southern Conference's preeminent programs and a perennial NCAA Tournament participant. He guided Wofford to five NCAA Tournament berths over the past 10 seasons and five Southern Conference championships. In addition to the on-court success of his teams, 100 percent of Young's student-athletes at Wofford who completed their eligibility graduated.
In addition to a host of coaching accolades, Young currently serves as a member of the NCAA's Men's Basketball Ethics Committee.
