News and Notes: Tuesday Edition

Below, some news and notes for Tuesday...
  • The Washington Post writes of recent coaching turnovers for Seth Greenberg at Virginia Tech, "This is the third-straight offseason in which the coach will need to fill two positions. Before the 2010 season, Greenberg also lost two assistant coaches when Bill Courtney accepted the head head coaching vacancy at Cornell and Ryan Odom left for an assistant coaching position at Charlotte."
  • Several Cornell players could end up in NCAA approved summer leagues this offseason. Below is a list of Cornell players that appeared on NCAA sanctioned summer pro leagues last year:
Errick Peck-Indy Pro Am
Jake Matthews-Pittsburgh Pro Am
Josh Figini-Howard Pulley Summer Pro Am, St. Paul, MN
Dwight Tarwater-Rocky Top League, Knoxville, TN
Ned Tomic-Cleveland Am Pro
  • Previewing tonight's D-League game between Springfield and Erie, the Erie Times News writes, "Springfield 7-footer Jeff Foote is averaging 15.1 points and 8.8 rebounds. Before he joined Springfield, Erie tried to bring him in as a practice player in training camp this season, but the D-League doesn't allow practice players in camp. Erie coach Jay Larranaga was an assistant at Cornell, where Foote finished his college career after playing at St. Bonaventure. Foote had a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Hornets last month."
