London adds 4 assistants
Mike London filled four sports of his coaching staff on Monday, retaining defensive backs Anthony Poindexter (as expected) and adding Vincent Brown, Jeff Hanson and Mike
Faragalli, who all coached with London at Richmond. None of the coaches have specific positions yet, as London still must sort out of the rest of his staff (Hint: His likely defensive coordinator is coaching in the NFL).
"All of them will bring passion and energy. They are men of character who understand the academic pursuits and aspirations that a young man might seek at a university like the University of Virginia," London said in a statement. "They are good coaches, good people and good family men. They are guys that, when you meet me, you meet them. They are very capable and confident in what they do. In a short time people will see that they bring a lot to the table in terms of the overall development of the student-athletes they are going to be coaching."
Brown, a former NFL linebacker, was a Cavaliers graduate assistant in 2007. He was the Dallas Cowboys' inside linebacker coach in 2006. Brown coached linebackers for the Spinders.
Hanson is a coaching veteran, having coached 38 years of college footbal and 28 at Richmond. Hanson served as Richmond's assistant head coach/recruiting coordinator/defensive line coach.
Faragalli was London's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach with the Spiders and helped Spiders quarterback Eric Ward become one of the top quarterbacks in the nation. He has also served as a head coach in the Canadian Football League.
