The worst kept secret in college basketball was head coach Buzz Williams would be leaving Virginia Tech to take the job at Texas A&M.

LSU's current interim head coach Tony Benford was linked to join him there as an assistant.

Benford took over for as Tigers head coach on an interim basis after the University suspended Will Wade indefinitely following his refusal to speak with his employer on the heel's of a Yahoo story detailing a conversation he had with imprisoned Christian Dawkins, the middleman at the heart of the federal investigation in corruption in college basketball.

Benford went 3-2 in five games as LSU's head coach, winning 2 games in the NCAA Tournament before being eliminated last Friday against Michigan State.
