In what seems to be a dream came true for Williams as it would for any together coach put in this position he quickly accepted. To get the opportunity to coach at your alma mater, and to each players who once felt the same way that you did.
Williams didn’t shake up the NCAA but it did still the pot a little bit. Reports came out saying that a former commit had de-committed and is back on he market since the news broke that coach Williams will be coaching at Virginia Tech

Buzz Williams is a hell of a coach. Went to NCAA tourney 5 of 6 seasons at Marquette and has done what no coach has done at Virginia Tech — been successful. Buzz took Hokies to 3 straight NCAA tourneys. But has left 2 spots for lateral jobs. We’ll see how long he stays at A&M.

Not many know this but Williams has a strong career of coaching being a part of several different teams and having strong seasons whether he was at. At Marquette, Williams was able to go to the NCAA tourney 5 of 6 seasons at and was able to do what no coach has done at Virginia Tech yet — been successful. Williams adds on to his impressive resume by having took the Hokies to 3 straight NCAA tourneys. Who knows how long his tenure at Texas A&M lasts.
