"One such person is North Carolina State associate head coach Bobby Lutz, who met with Virginia Tech officials Thursday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C., according to multiple people familiar with the coaching search who were granted anonymity to speak freely.
"Two people close to Lutz said there is mutual interest between the two sides, in part because of Lutz's previous head coaching experience."
Lutz spent 12 seasons at Charlotte, leading the 49ers to five NCAA tournament appearances and three league titles. He served as an assistant at Iowa State before being hired by Mark Gottfried at NC State in 2011.
Just last week NC State named Lutz associate head coach.
