Virginia Tech Hires Georgia State Offensive Coordinator Brad Glenn at QBs Coach

Virginia Tech continues to fill out their coaching staff as they've announced that Georgia State offensive coordinator Brad Glenn will be Virginia Tech's QBs coach and passing game coordinator which was first reported by Michael Niziolek of the Roanoke Times.

Glenn has been the offensive coordinator and QBs coach at Georgia State for the past three seasons with the Panthers reaching bowl games and finishing with winning records in all three seasons. His offenses set school records for points per game and total yards per game in 2019 only to break that points per game record in 2020. Glenn also sorted through a QB battle at the beginning of the 2021 season which led to the Panthers winning 6 of their final 7 games to reach a bowl game.

Prior to Georgia State, Glenn was the offensive coordinator/QBs coach/associate head coach at Western Carolina from 2012-2018 with a stint coaching different positions at Appalachian State from 2005-2011 which includes the famous 2007 App State upset win over Michigan. His coaching career started at Greer HS in South Carolina as the offensive coordinator from 1995-2000 with stops at Elon, North Greenville, and Seneca H.S. prior to his time at App State.

It's important to note that Glenn is known for his balanced offensive approach which seems to fit in well with the power spread, run-first offense that Tech seems likely to run with Brent Pry and reported offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen.

One notable fact about the hiring of Glenn is the fact that he is the first staff hire who did not either player under Brent Pry or coach alongside him previously.
