Feb. 19, 2004: Mike London interviews for Richmond's head coaching job

Virginia defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator Mike London is scheduled to interview today for the head coaching position at the University of Richmond.

A 1983 University of Richmond graduate and former Spiders defensive back, London is considered a top candidate to replace Jim Reid, who resigned Friday to become the defensive line coach at Syracuse. London could not be reached for comment.

London, 43, has been at U.Va. for three seasons.

He has coached college football for 16 years, including twice at Richmond (1988-89, 1994-96).

London was also at William and Mary from 1990-93 and came to Virginia from Boston College, where he was defensive line coach from 1997-2000.

He is known as a solid recruiter and has strong ties in the Hampton Roads area. A Hampton native, London starred at Bethel High before signing with Richmond.

If London leaves U.Va., he would be the fourth assistant to do so since the end of the season. In a six-week span, Virginia lost running backs Kevin Ross, tight ends coach Andy Heck and special teams coach Corwin Brown. Groh has since hired Anthony Poindexter, John Garrett and Mark D'Onofrio.
