Any speculation that Virginia head coach Mike London was going to be axed should the Cavaliers
lose to arch rival Virginia Tech Friday has been squashed.
Virginia athletic director Craig
Littlepage announced today that London would remain as Virginia's head coach for the 2015 season.
"It was important to see improvement in our football program this season,” Littlepage said in a statement released by UVA media relations. “I’ve seen signs of progress in many areas. Through the staff changes made over the last two years, we are better at teaching the game and in the overall development of the student-athletes. We also continue to notice the commitment by this group of coaches and student-athletes to their academic and community responsibilities."
The Wahoos have improved to a 5-6 season and will be bowl eligible should Virginia defeat Virginia Tech Friday night for the first time since 2004.
“I trust the plan Mike has in place and believe his leadership provides the best opportunity for Virginia football to be successful in the future.” Littlepage said.
