According to reports in both the Herald and Globe, the school is set to hire former Minnesota Vikings QB coach Kevin Rogers as its next Offensive Coordinator, replacing Gary Tranquill. An official announcement is expected later today.

Rogers has been out of college football for five seasons now. Before his stint in the NFL, Rogers coached the Virginia Tech quarterbacks under Frank Beamer for four seasons (2002-05). Rogers also spent time on Bob Davie's Notre Dame staff from 1999-2001 as offensive coordinator/QBs coach, as well as at Syracuse from 1991-98, serving as quarterbacks coach, assistant head coach, recruiting coordinator and offensive coordinator under Paul Pasqualoni.

I am cool with the hire. Like I said, it's always a good sign if Virginia Tech fans think this is a good hire. I will be interested to see how this hire affects Ryan Day and Dave Brock. Both internal candidates were passed over for the position, especially Day, who seemed to be a lock for the position a few week ago. I'm also interested in finding out who made the final decision on this hire, though I'm pretty sure we already know the answer to that question, and also pretty sure we'll never get the whole story behind this hire.

Leave your thoughts on the hire below.
