Virginia announces that head football coach Mike London has resigned. Details forthcoming.— Virginia Football (@UVa_Football) November 29, 2015
"Mike London has been an outstanding representative of the University of Virginia," Littlepage said in a statement. "During his tenure, Mike created a positive culture for our student-athletes to develop as young men, who improved each year in the classroom and represented us very well in the community. Mike was a tremendous mentor for his players and many of our coaches. His ability to inspire others helped our program establish great relationships among the high school football coaches in the state and he has been a tremendous ambassador for the University. We are thankful for Mike's numerous contributions representing the University and Virginia athletics."
"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 that's a part of the University of Virginia."
In total, London amassed a record of 27-46 while on Grounds, including a paltry 14-34 in conference play. The team finished with a losing record in each of his final four years.
