For years, Virginia Tech fans clamored for a new offensive coordinator since Bryan Stinespring's appointment to the position in 2002. It took the team's worst record in 20 years for head coach Frank Beamer to see things the same way, overhauling an offensive coaching staff that had been largely intact since 2006.
Last week, the Virginia Tech head coach officially announced the hiring of Scot Loeffler as the team's new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Along with Loeffler, the Hokies hired Jeff Grimes to be the offensive line coach and Aaron Moorehead to coach the wide receivers.
Stinespring, who has been a member of Beamer's staff since 1990 and a close friend of the head coach, will remain on staff as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator. Stinespring is an excellent recruiter.
Former quarterbacks coach Mike O'Cain was relieved of his duties while offensive line coach Curt Newsome took a similar position with James Madison. Former receivers coach Kevin Sherman took the same position at Purdue.
Here is a look at each of the three new offensive coaches.
