Hokies AD to leave position at end of the month

   Jim Weaver, who has shepherded Virginia Tech through two conference realignments and overseen vast facilities improvements in 16 years as the school's athletic director, says he will step aside at the end of the month.
   Weaver says in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that he made the decision about four weeks ago. He told senior staff on Monday.
   He says "once in a while, we're not able to live out our goals and objectives, and this is one of them."
   Weaver revealed in 2008 that he is battling Parkinson's disease, and in recent years and has undergone four back surgeries and a hip replacement.
   He says he's due to have both of his hips replaced in the near future.
