VT - Staff Tracker

Six years into his tenure, with two games left in the 2021 season, Virginia Tech made the decision to part ways with Justin Fuente.

Fuente's tenure with the Hokies started promising with a 10-4 season in 2016, followed by a 9-4 year in 2017, but they were unable to sustain the success in the years that followed winning 6 games, then 8, and then 5 before starting 5-5 leading to his dismissal earlier this fall.
