VT AD Jim Weaver: Hokies staying put

With rumors and speculation continuing to swirl around conference realignment scenarios, Virginia Tech athletic director Jim Weaver made it clear the Hokies aren't going anywhere. When asked on Tuesday how seriously he has considered leaving the ACC, Weaver said, "We have no interest in leaving the ACC."

"Virginia Tech is in the middle of the footprint of the conference," he said. "We have wanted to be in the Atlantic Coast Conference since its beginning in 1953. We're happy with our membership and the quality of the academic institutions we associate with and we believe we are in the proper conference for us."

Weaver said the ACC athletic directors aren't concerned about the Florida State rumors.

"I don't really think there's anything going on," Weaver said. "I think it was an individual who made some comments from his perspective that got things riled up a little."
