Megan Duffy’s First Staff at Virginia Tech Has Multiple Common Threads

New Virginia Tech Women’s Basketball head coach Megan Duffy has her three assistants with Kentucky’s Jen Hoover joining North Carolina’s Itoro Coleman and Penn State’s Sharnee Zoll-Norman to round out the assistant coaching staff.

It’s definitely impressive to see the coaches Duffy has landed, especially landing quality assistants from a pair of programs in very good shape in Coleman and Zoll-Norman coming from UNC and PSU respectively. That would seem to say a lot about the respect that Duffy has as a coach across the industry and the confidence people have in her succeeding in Blacksburg following what she did at Miami (OH) and Marquette.

Now landing a quality, sitting Big East head coach was an impressive hire, but Duffy’s resume did have a couple gaps in that she had no ACC experience and she hadn’t really coached in the Mid-Atlantic since her stint at George Washington ended in 2014. Duffy is also known as a stronger coach than recruiter even though she put together some very good classes during her time at Marquette.

In making these hires, Duffy has filled those gaps in a significant way as all these hires generally share multiple common threads.
