Virginia Tech interviews Stanford assistant Aaron Moorehead

Virginia Tech Coach Frank Beamer hasn’t announced any new hires to his offensive coaching staff. For that matter, he has yet to officially confirm there are openings available. Beamer, though, has been anything but idle recently.

An athletic department official confirmed reports that in addition to interviewing former Auburn offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler and offensive line coach Jeff Grimes on campus Monday, Beamer also spoke with Stanford assistant coach Aaron Moorhead about becoming Virginia Tech’s next wide receivers coach.

Moorehead, 32, played wide receiver for the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts for four seasons (2003-07) after graduating from Illinois. He and his father, Emory, are the only father-son combination to appear in, and win, a Super Bowl. Moorehead’s cousin is former NBA all-star Brad Dougherty.

Virginia Tech’s current wide receivers coach, Kevin Sherman, is expected to accept a similar position at Purdue.

Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports reported Monday night that Loeffler has already been hired as Virginia Tech’s next offensive coordinator. However, the school has yet to make an official announcement and one person familiar with the interview process would only say Loeffler is the leading candidate for the job.
