Ron Mattes leaving Virginia to become offensive line coach at Elon

By Steve Yanda

Updated at 4:25 p.m.

Elon announced Monday the hiring of Ron Mattes as the program's offensive line coach. Mattes served Virginia in the same capacity last season.

Virginia Coach Mike London announced in a teleconference Monday that tight ends coach Scott Wachenheim will assume the team's offensive line coaching duties. London also said an addition to the Virginia staff will be made at some point in the near future, though he did not reveal who that addition might be.

Wachenheim last was in charge of an offensive line unit at Liberty from 2006-08. He also served as Liberty's offensive coordinator during that span.

Mattes had worked as a graduate assistant on London's staff at Virginia in 2010. He will join the staff of first-year Elon coach Jason Swepson.

While at Virginia, Mattes oversaw an offensive line that helped the Cavaliers rank No. 3 in the ACC in passing offense (265.5 ypg) and No. 6 in the league in rushing (139.3 ypg). He also helped develop freshman offensive lineman Morgan Moses, who started seven games and appeared in four others.
