(WSPA) – A source familiar with the search tells 7 Sports that Wofford Basketball Coach Mike Young has agreed to become head coach at Virginia Tech.

The school is expected to make an announcement this evening and Young also plans to speak to his Wofford team, according to the source.

Young guided the Terriers to a 30-5 record this season and his team advanced with a victory in the NCAA tournament for the first time.  He’s been Wofford’s head coach the past 17 seasons.

Virginia Tech, an Elite Eight team this season, recently lost Buzz Williams to Texas A&M.

Young is a Radford, VA native and attended Bridgewater College in Virginia.  He was an assistant at Radford University before arriving at Wofford as an assistant coach in 1989.  He served under then Wofford head coach and current Terriers athletic director Richard Johnson until ascending to the top job there.
