Virginia hires strength and conditioning coach for football program

By Steve Yanda

Evan Marcus has been hired as the Virginia's director of football training and player development, Coach Mike London announced in a press release issued Tuesday by the school's athletic department.

Marcus, who served as the Virginia football program's strength and conditioning coach from 2003-06, spent the past four years working in the NFL. Marcus was the Miami Dolphins' strength and conditioning coach the last three years and worked in the same capacity with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007.

Prior to his first stint at Virginia, Marcus was an assistant strength coach with the New Orleans Saints in from 2000-02. He also has held assistant strength and conditioning coaching positions at Arizona State (1991-92), Rutgers (1993), Maryland (1994), Texas (1995-97) and Louisville (1998-99).

"This is a really unique and special opportunity for me and my family," Marcus said in a statement. "I don't know too many people who have the chance to come back to a place that is very special to them. I am grateful to both Mike London and Jon Oliver for this opportunity. I told Coach London that my job is to help him win championships. He wants a physical brand of football, and that's what I plan to deliver by helping our players get stronger, faster and more explosive. I want to see us bring a toughness and physicality to these guys so we can win."
