Texas A&M is expected to hire Virginia Tech's Buzz Williams as its next head coach, sources confirmed to ESPN.

An official announcement is expected later this week. The agreement was first reported by CBS Sports.

Williams has been considered the heavy favorite to replace Billy Kennedy since the end of last season and was essentially the only candidate for the Aggies once they parted ways with Kennedy last month. Virginia Tech's season ended with a loss to Duke in the Sweet 16 last Friday, and Williams and A&M finalized a deal in the last few days.
