Virginia hires Lazor as offensive coordinator

It's official -- Virginia has hired former Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks quarterback coach Bill Lazor as offensive coordinator. Lazor is the penultimate hire to Coach Mike London's first coaching hire, joining former defensive coordinator Jim Reid (formerly the Miami Dolphins linebackers coach) as NFL influences on the staff.

"First of all, I feel it's a great atmosphere," Lazor said in a released statement, emphasizing his excitement about coming to Virginia. "I have lived in the state previously
for four years and I have some very good friends in the area who have coached at Virginia. In my mind I have an unbelievable view of what Virginia football is, what it's going to be and should be. I think Virginia is a place that is going to win, a place full of great people ­ not only the student-athletes we have a chance to coach, but also the people involved coaching the team, supporting the team and those part of the University."

Lazor, 37, has college experience at Buffalo and Cornell, where he was a record setting quarterback. He's served on the coaching staffs of notable NFL coaches such as Joe Gibbs, Dan Reeves and Mike Holmgren.

I'll have more on Lazor after speaking to him tomorrow morning.
