Mike London Named Head Coach At The Prestigious University of Virginia

December 7,2009
West Point, Virginia

Congratulations are extended to Mr Mike London, his immediate family and to the entire University of Virginia Nation.
University of Virginia President John T. Casteen III in a News Release stated that "Mike's personal values and commitment to excellence-combined with his understanding of University culture and his proven ability to build a strong team-will make the London era in Virginia football a good time,perhaps the best times for players,fans,and the University generally."
According to the University of Virginia Sports Media Mike London's efforts in 2008 earned him FCS National Coach of the Year honors from both the American Football Coaches Association and Schutt Sports/American Football Monthly magazine. The University of Virginia Sports Media states that Mr. London was also honored as the Black Coaches Association Male Coach of the Year in 2008,beating out Mike Tomlin of the Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers for the award.
Further the UVA Sports Media says that London was tabbed the state Coach of the Year from both VaSID and the Peninsula Sports Club.
I am confident that Mike London can resurrect the University of Virginia football program and all the prep recruits like the running back P.J. Peeler from the Washington D.C.area and the QB. recruit from Norfolk going to the University of Alabama you really need to check out what UVA has to offer before leaving the Old Dominion to play college football in Pennsylvania or Alabama.
What's in the water in the Hampton Roads and Tidewater area that said area keeps producing outstanding coaches ?
