BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech men’s soccer head coach Mike Brizendine announced the addition of Owen Burnett to the program’s staff on Wednesday, Jan. 18. Burnett will serve in a volunteer assistant role for the Hokies.
“We’re pumped to bring Owen onto our staff,” Brizendine said of Burnett’s hiring. “He’s a guy that I’ve known for a while now and I admire his willingness to help out in whatever way he can. It’s an exciting time in our program and we’re glad to have Owen here with us.”
Burnett joins Virginia Tech after graduating from Christopher Newport University last December with a degree in business management. While at Christopher Newport, Burnett played four seasons for the Captains.
A native of Pennington, N.J., Burnett appeared in 42 games for the Captains as a forward. He scored five career goals, including three in the 2021 campaign in which he made a career high four starts.
