The Virginia Tech Hokies basketball program has recently considered Jeff Capel for the Hokies basketball coaching position after the next season.

The decision will be made at the end of the season, if the five-year, $27 million contract is sent to Coach Capel. The Hokies previously considered Capel while he was at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) but he later took the Oklahoma job.

This next season is Capel's last season before being able to sign a new contract with Oklahoma. The possible attraction for Coach Capel is that he is a Carolina native. He has relatives close to Blacksburg, which could also draw him to the Hokies.

The downside of heading to Blacksburg is the basketball recognition. The Hokies do not have the recognition for basketball that Oklahoma has and is gaining more of.

The weather changes will most likely not factor into Capel's decision. Although, being in a warm environment is an added attraction at Oklahoma.

But the fanbase at Virginia Tech is outstanding; they're faithful to their teams. But the chances of the Hokies offering a contract to Capel are 50:50. It all depends on how Coach Seth Greenberg does with the Hokies basketball program this year.
