BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech President Dr. Timothy D. Sands and Director of Athletics Whit Babcock announced Thursday that Jill Lytle Wilson has formally accepted an offer to become head coach of Virginia Tech’s volleyball program.
“We are excited to welcome Jill and her husband, Jared, to Virginia Tech,” Babcock said. “Jill served as an integral component of an LSU program that became a perennial NCAA tournament team during her tenure in the highly-competitive Southeastern Conference. We heard from some of the most respected coaches in the country about Jill’s many talents, and their sentiments were very consistent that the school that recruited her away from her alma mater was going to be fortunate to have Jill lead their volleyball program.”
Wilson becomes the fifth head coach in the 40-year history of the women’s volleyball program at Tech. She joins the Hokies after an extremely successful run on the bench in Baton Rouge where, as the recruiting coordinator, she signed five top-30 recruiting classes according to PrepVolleyball.com.
