More tweaks to Virginia Tech's staff
By ESPN.com staff
Virginia Tech assistant Jim Cavanaugh has been moved to the administrative position of director of recruiting and high school relations, and former Tech standout Cornell Brown will replace Cavanaugh coaching the outside linebackers and help out with the defensive line. Cavanaugh was the Hokies' recruiting coordinator and coached the strong safeties and outside linebackers.
Brown, who was inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame in 2007, comes to the Hokies from the Canadian Football League where he served as the defensive line coach for the Calgary Stampeders the past three seasons.
Earlier in the week, coach Frank Beamer named long-time assistant Billy Hite as Tech's assistant to the head coach and senior adviser and added Shane Beamer, another former Hokie, to his coaching staff.
