Justin Fuente appears to be having issues at Virginia Tech, and based on the response from Hokie fans, he won’t have a long-term outlook at Blacksburg.
Syracuse knocked out the Hokies 41-36 on Saturday, but it was more than that. Tech lost his third straight home game and fell to 3-4, but he also lost a 36-27 lead with 5:36 left to play against a team that had lost 10 straight ACC games. The Orange scored 14 points in the 2:28 final to end their own three-game losing streak.
There was even a stadium chant, “Fire Fuente,” as the Hokies are on the verge of a losing third season in the past 4 years.
Here is a sample of some of the fan reactions:

How is Justin Fuente still employed this morning? Confusing and just sad. #Hokies

Wow again on a Sunday morning and Justin Fuente still has his job. Tragic.

The thing about Justin Fuente is that it sounded like a great hire on paper. It just didn’t work …

The song of the fire Fuente was real. The stadium was in a riot. Great day to be inside the track stadium. Great day to be a hokie. So happy to lose a weekend with this sorry ass team again
