Virginia Tech co-defensive coordinator Galen Scott resigns 'to focus on family'

Virginia Tech announced today that assistant coach Galen Scott has resigned from the Virginia Tech coaching staff.

Scott cited wanting to focus on his family as his reason for resigning, stating in a release from the Virginia Tech athletic department.

Per the release, Scott has stepped down from the Virginia Tech coaching staff to focus on his family. I appreciate all the coaches, student-athletes and staff members I was fortunate enough to work with at Virginia Tech. "I wish the Hokies the very best in 2018 and beyond", said Scott in a statement. In the short term, director of player development Justin Hamilton will take over Scott's former duties.

After serving two seasons as Tech's assistant head coach and safeties coach, Scott was promoted in January and designated to share the defensive coordinator title with longtime Tech assistant coach Bud Foster.

Hamilton was a Swiss Army Knife for Frank Beamer, lining up at running back, wide receiver and defensive back.

Before that, he spent four seasons at VMI as a linebackers coach and special teams coordinator, joining the Keydets after four years at UVa-Wise, where he worked his way up to defensive coordinator.

In other coaching news, Fuente accepted the resignation of director of player personnel Chuck Cantor who is taking a similar position at the University of Florida. He oversaw Tech's football recruiting process from '14-17.
