More staff changes for Virginia Tech
By ESPN.com staff
Virginia Tech quarterbacks coach Mike O'Cain will take over the play-calling duties, but Bryan Stinespring will retain the title of offensive coordinator, the school announced on Tuesday. Shane Beamer, who was previously announced as the running backs coach, will now also be the associate head coach.
Additionally, Stinespring will take over the offensive tackles to go along with his current coaching duties with the tight ends, and Curt Newsome will now coach just the offensive guards and the center position, as opposed to the entire line, which he coached the previous five seasons.
On defense, Torrian Gray will take over the rovers position and will now coach the entire defensive backfield. Beamer previously announced the hiring outside linebackers coach Cornell Brown, who will also help out with the defensive ends.
