Head of FBI’s Roanoke Office to Work For Va. Tech

By Allan Lengel

Kevin Foust, head of the Roanoke, Va. FBI office, is a little nervous.

After a quarter century with the FBI, Foust, 50, is leaving to become deputy chief of Virginia Tech’s police department, according to the Roanoke Times.

His $80,000 a year job will be to assess security for the university across Virginia and overseas, the paper reported. The university faced tragedy four years ago when a gunman opened fire, killing  32 and wounded many others.

“I’m very nervous about going down there because it’s something I’ve never done before,” Foust told the Roanoke Times.¬† “I pray that they’re patient.”
