It’s official: Buzz Williams is going to Texas A&M

The SEC just got a little sweatier. Virginia Tech has confirmed that Buzz Williams is leaving the program to take the job at Texas A&M. Williams shared the news with his players this morning and the school issued a press release. He’s expected to be introduced in College Station tomorrow.

Jeff Goodman is reporting that LSU’s Tony Benford will join Williams at A&M as an assistant. Benford has been serving as LSU’s interim coach since Will Wade was suspended and managed to get the Tigers to the Sweet 16. Benford served on Williams’ staff at Marquette from 2008-12.

Who wins in a sweat-off: Williams or Bruce Pearl?

UPDATE: Texas A&M has now confirmed the news. Williams, an assistant for the Aggies from 2004-06, will be introduced tomorrow afternoon at 4 p.m. at Reed Arena.

“I am so humbled and honored to return home to Texas A&M, and proud to lead the Aggies,” Williams said in a press release. “I’d like to thank Chancellor Sharp, President Young and Scott Woodward for this incredible opportunity.  This is our home, and we are ready to join with the 12th Man to win championships, graduate our players and represent this world-class university with integrity.”

      Good one, Chris. Like the father that chastised his son for not winning the spelling bee.
      What word did you miss?
      Hell, no wonder you can’t spell it, you don’t even know how to say it.

  1. To answer the sweat-off question, nothing compares to Sean Miller:

    Wear an undershirt dude!

    The league just gets tougher every year. He’s a good addition and it makes the league better. Meanwhile the LSU saga should be as good as the UT football implosion a year ago, just sit back and watch.

      Yea I love the league getting better but as far as Kentucky can improve maybe some new assistants like Avery Johnson coach O for example to help win a 9th title

    • I think Avery is more suited to the NBA. I agree on Coach O though!

    Great hire. The SEC is becoming the best league for coaching now too. Already surpassed the ACC in recruiting. Beating them in the tournament too. Will be the best league by far next season.
