Will Virginia Tech’s defensive coaching staff continue to play musical chairs against UNC? | Virginia Tech

Tech has called on various staff members to fill in for the team’s full-time defensive coaches. Multiple staff members — Tyler, Pierson Prioleau and Zach Sparber — were used as defensive assistants leading up to last year’s Belk Bowl.

Fuente likened it to a backup quarterback needing to be ready at a moment’s notice to fill in.

This Startup’s Product: Remote Coaching From Maria Sharapova, Michael Phelps, and Other Olympians

In the midst of increased remote work, a new company is showing what the future of coaching might look like.

The startup, called The Skills, launched on Tuesday with a website that lets users watch instructional videos on skills ranging from spiking a volleyball to perfecting the breaststroke. The tutorials are given by some of the world’s top athletes, including 23-time Olympic gold-medal swimmer Michael Phelps, career Grand Slam tennis champion Maria Sharapova, snowboarder Shaun White, beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, and NFL wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, among others.
