BLACKSBURG, Va. - As the basketball coach at Virginia Tech, Seth Greenberg was a frequent March guest on ESPN’s college basketball coverage, griping about the Hokies being left out of the NCAA Tournament.
Now, he’ll be a more regular personality on the network.
ESPN announced Monday that Greenberg will join the network as an analyst for the upcoming season.
Greenberg was fired this offseason after nine seasons with the Hokies. He went 170-123 and reached the NCAA Tournament once. But his teams also had a number of bubble-bursting near-misses in his tenure.
This past march, he served as a guest studio analyst for ESPN during the tournament.
“I am excited and honored to be joining ESPN,” Greenberg said in an ESPN release. “I look forward to using the relationships I have developed over 35 years of coaching college basketball to bring unique insights to the ESPN viewing audience.”
Greenberg could not be reached for further comment.
