Virginia Tech announced on Tuesday that they had fired Justin Fuente, who was in his sixth season as the program’s head football coach.

Fuente, who came from Memphis, began his tenure well, going 10-4 and 9-4. But he’s been around .500 since then, and his Hokies were 5-5 this season.

Some might argue it was surprising that Virginia Tech didn’t give Fuente more time, especially considering how wacky last season was.
