Not too surprised. Only once in his 22 years coaching has he had a team lose less than 10 games, and that was his 2009-10 Virginia Tech squad that lost nine games. Only once did he get to the NCAA Tourney with Virginia Tech (2007). Though in 2010 and 2011 they were dangerously close to making the tournament, but didn't quite get there. I wonder if a smaller school will try to pick him up.

What stupid timing. Right before recruiting season begins.

If you're going to fire a coach, you need to do it right when the season ends so that new guy can come in and get his staff in place before recruiting kicks off.

The AD mentioned in the presser that Greenberg would've been let go anyway even if the three assistants who left the staff for other jobs had stuck around. Of course the assistants probably fled because they felt the hammer was coming.
