Virginia Tech head football coach Frank Beamer announced today that Zohn Burden has been named wide receivers coach for the Hokies. Burden, a Virginia native and Virginia Military Institute graduate, joins Virginia Tech from Old Dominion University, serving the past three years as the passing game coordinator.
Burden twice coached for Old Dominion, from 2012-14 (passing game coordinator) and from 2007-10 (defensive backs). Burden also spent one year as wide receivers coach at the University of Richmond.
“We are excited to welcome Coach Burden and his family into the Hokie Nation,” Beamer said. “He brings an enthusiasm for recruiting, and his knowledge and experience of the wide receiver position as both a player and coach will be a good fit. As a recruiter, his relentless approach and diligence will pay dividends for us as we work to attract the highest caliber of student-athlete here to Virginia Tech.”
