Vandy Looking At Virginia Tech’s Bud Foster?

Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster is the lastest name to be connected to the open job at Vanderbilt.  Foster was linked to the job by an internet site on Monday.

Yesterday, Darryl Slater of The Richmond Times-Dispatch asked Foster about the rumors.

“It’s an SEC school, a BCS conference,” Foster said.  “It would be very intriguing from that standpoint if it ever happened.  Can’t speculate on things that aren’t there.”

Translation: If Vandy calls, I’ll listen.

Asked if VU is a “coach killer” type of job, Foster said: “That’s a hard one.  That’s the toughest job, probably in the SEC.  You see schools like Northwestern and Stanford and programs like that, and I think academic institutions, you can get a good quality kid in there.  Tennessee is a tough state to recruit in.  I know we’ve been there before.  And it’s in a tough conference.”

Translation: If Vandy calls, I’ll listen… but they’ll have to make it worth my while.

Foster has been at Virginia Tech since 1987 and has been Frank Beamer’s defensive coordinator since 1995.

Mark Richt tried in vain to hire Foster as his defensive coordinator last offseason.
