Virginia Tech Hires Bustle as Graduate Assistant

Yes, that was cheap. I apologize. From the Lafayette Advertiser:

The college coaching career of former Lafayette High School and UL lineman Brad Bustle will start in a familiar place.

Bustle has accepted a graduate assistant coaching position at Virginia Tech, where his father, Rickey Bustle served on coach Frank Beamer's staff for 14 years before working as the Ragin' Cajuns head coach from 2002-10. He reports to campus in July.

There was plenty of speculation after his father was fired by UL-Lafayette about whether or not Frank Beamer would bring Rickey Bustle back to Blacksburg. Instead, it's Bustle's son, Brad, who's now a Hokie.

Brad Bustle was born in Blacksburg and told the Advertiser he grew up watching Beamer build the Virginia Tech program. He'll assist the defensive coaches and video crew while working on a graduate degree in instructional technology and design.

Be sure to check the original story, which includes a quote from the elder Bustle, the former offensive coordinator at Virginia Tech.
