Mike Young says coaching Virginia Tech 'dream come true'

BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) Mike Young looked around Virginia Tech's Cassell Coliseum and said he's "so thrilled to be home."

"My love for ball originated in this building many years ago," Young said Monday at a news conference introducing him as Virginia Tech's new basketball coach. Rattling off a list of former players he watched growing up, and pointing toward an NIT banner hanging from the rafters, he added: "I remember it like it was yesterday."

The news conference came five days after Buzz Williams resigned to take the men's basketball job at Texas A&M. Young, who grew up just 15 miles from Blacksburg in Radford, Virginia, said the Virginia Tech job is the realization of a dream that was decades in the making for him, since he attended Hokies games with his father as a kid.
