Virginia Tech will not have 100% staff retention after Brent Pry's first season as Cincinnati has "zeroed in" on Virginia Tech QBs coach/passing game coordinator Brad Glenn as their next offensive coordinator as first reported by Chad Brendel of Bearcat Journal.
Hearing Cincinnati is zeroing in on Virginia Tech QB coach/passing game coordinator Brad Glenn for the recently vacant OC position. #Bearcats— Chad Brendel (@ChadBrendel) February 21, 2023
This move comes after Glenn had been the QBs coach for one season. Prior to Blacksburg, he was the offensive coordinator at Georgia State from 2019-2021 after serving as the offensive coordinator at Western Carolina from 2012-2018.
Glenn and Cincinnati head coach Scott Satterfield previously overlapped at Appalachian State from 2005-2008 when Satterfield was the QBs coach and Glenn coached TEs for a year and slot receivers for 3 seasons after. Glenn also took over the QBs coach role when Satterfield left for Toledo in 2009 while Satterfield took over the vacant QBs coach role (as OC) in 2012 at App State when Glenn left for Western Carolina.
Cincinnati had previously hired former Iowa State OC Tom Manning as their offensive coordinator, but Manning has left weeks after getting the job to join the Indianapolis Colts' staff.
While the Hokies conduct their search for a replacement, I would expect that senior offensive analyst Brian Crist will likely take on the interim QBs coach job. He is entering his third season at VT after spending a few years at Youngstown State including 2018-2019 as their offensive coordinator.
Brad Glenn has been officially hired as the Cincinnati offensive coordinator with Virginia Tech head coach Brent Pry making the following statement on his departure from Blacksburg.
"I want to congratulate Brad Glenn on his new opportunity at Cincinnati as offensive coordinator. I realize the longstanding relationship Brad has with Coach Satterfield from his time at Appalachian State. We are thankful for Brad and support him in this career opportunity. We are appreciative of his family’s time as Hokies. I wish them all the best!" Pry said.
