The Virginia Tech football program extended the contracts of eight assistant coaches, most of them by two years, The Roanoke Times reported Wednesday.
Most notably, Hokies offensive coordinator Brad Cornelsen and special teams coordinator James Shibest were extended. That will keep both in Blacksburg, Va., until at least June 2020.
Safeties coach Galen Scott was extended one season, which means his current contract will expire in June 2019. All eight coaches who received new deals will make the same salary as they did in 2016.
Defensive coordinator Bud Foster didn’t receive a contract extension, but he was already under contract through the 2019 season.
