HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- JMU fans are devastated after learning that Women's Basketball Head Coach Kenny Brooks is heading to Virginia Tech to take over the helm of the Hokies program.

Several students tell WHSV they are sad to see Coach Brooks leave, and wish he had chosen a different school. JMU and Virginia Tech, located in Blacksburg, are just a few hours apart, which has lead to tensions between fans in the past.

As fans, players and the JMU community look ahead to what's next for the women's basketball team, students have positive words of encouragement for the team.

Students call the Dukes resilient and believe the ladies will continue to succeed throughout future seasons.
