Virginia Tech staff still in flux

There has been plenty of speculation about possible staff changes at Virginia Tech, but as of right now, the only thing I can confirm through a source is that wide receivers coach Kevin Sherman has been offered a job at Purdue, and offensive line coach Curt Newsome has been offered a job at JMU, but neither one of those assistants has been fired from Virginia Tech. Whether or not those coaches are retained remains to be seen, but during last season, my guess was that if any coaches were relieved of their duties, Sherman and Newsome would be at the top of the list.

There has also been a report that Frank Beamer was scheduled to meet Monday with Stanford offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton at the American Football Coaches Association convention in Nashville, Tenn., according to a CBSSports.com. There has been nothing official to report on that end. My prediction is that Mike O'Cain and Bryan Stinespring are demoted, not fired.

There are still plenty of decisions to be made in Blacksburg. Stay tuned.
