I would wager that Weaver has other reasons that could not be discussed on camera
Come on.. to frame the discussion on mens or women being able to coach a WBB program is silly for the VT situation. Simply at VT, Weaver as an AD places limits on salary he wants to expend on WBB and olympic sports and guess MBB as well. He is not going to get into the escalating bidding war for the best and brightest coach in America and associated multi-million dollar salary. He got from his prospective the best coach for the value and salary he expected to pay. (Same for James).
Guess that is why VT is in the black but many of these sports are very poor performers. you get what you pay for.
Its been a long long time since VT has engaged in the national search for a football coach, I hope whenever Coach Beamer retires, VT is prepared as a going rate a national coach asst or not starts at 1.75 to 2 million and 4-5 for a saban level. period No negotiations. Its a different world since 1987
