Virginia Tech hires Buzz Williams, puts his fired assistant on website instead

At least they didn't hire Seth Greenberg Wearing A Mustache.

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?

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?

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.
