Virginia Cavaliers’ Head Football Coach Mike London Resigns

This morning Virginia Cavaliers’ Head Football Coach, Mike London, resigned.

According to The Cavalier Daily, London resigned after the team’s 23-20 loss yesterday to Virginia Tech.

Mike London has been an outstanding representative of the University of Virginia, Littlepage said. During his tenure, Mike created a positive culture for our student-athletes to develop as young men, who improved each year in the classroom ad represented us very well in the community. Mike was a tremendous mentor for his players and many of our coaches.

Coach London, who we featured earlier this season, had a 27-46 record in his six seasons at Virginia and had one year remaining on his contract. The team and the former coach reached a financial agreement that will pay London $2.7 million through next year.

I appreciate the opportunity to have been the head football coach at the University of Virginia and for the relationships that have been formed during my time in Charlottesville that will last for years to come, London said. I took this job to make a profound difference in the lives of young men and to re-establish Virginia football as one of the best programs in the ACC. While we were successful in the development of our players in many areas, I would have liked to have won more games for the student-athletes, coaches, fans and everyone thats a part of the University of Virginia.
