From the looks of things, Tyrone Nix may have been a nifty pickup. He spent last season doing senior defensive analyst work for Texas A&M. Prior to that Nix did for Middle Tennessee State what Bud Foster is doing for us, Defensive Coordinator and Linebacker coach. (See the official announcement from Hokie Sports.)
It’s going to be interesting to see how he fits in to the scheme of things. Being an analyst, senior or not, doesn’t strike me as a “happy fulfilling” job for an active, experienced field coach.
Coach Nix has solid Sec level experience under Houston Nutt at Ole Miss, and those sorts of contacts and that particular recruiting territory is going to be a really good prize to put in our side pockets. A good coach who knows the new territory is a program stretcher, and that’s what the Hokies need.
