The Virginia Tech Hokies made a big splash by hiring Marquette's Buzz Williams to be their new basketball coach. But are we sure they actually hired Buzz Williams?
Va. Tech site puts up pic of bald former Marq. coach—who is not Buzz Williams (Scott Monarch) pic.twitter.com/tWpH7C7J2U— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) March 22, 2014
Yup, that's a picture of Scott Monarch, once a member of Williams' staff at Marquette, now a member of the staff at North Texas. And why did Monarch and Williams part ways?
Virginia Tech mistakenly put up a picture of Buzz's assistant WHO GOT FIRED FOR LYING ABOUT A RECRUITING VIOLATION on Buzz's bio page.— Rubie Q (@Rubie_Q) March 22, 2014
Yeah, he woulda been fine if he'd just said he gave some recruits some free stuff and a ride by accident, but instead he lied about it.
But seriously, this is kinda impressive: I typed in "Buzz Williams" into our photo tool, and hundreds of photos of Buzz taken since Monarch was fired in 2012 came up. Typing in "Scott Monarch" yields zero photos. They had to SEARCH for this photo.
