London resigned from his post at Virginia on Nov. 29 after the Cavaliers finished 4-8.

London coached for six seasons at Virginia and had a 27-46 record. He's regarded as a top recruiter of Washington, Maryland and Virginia, and his addition comes after former Friendship Collegiate coach Aazaar Abdul-Rahim joined Durkin's staff.

London has previous college coaching experience at Richmond, where he won a Football Championship Subdivision championship in 2008, Boston College and William & Mary. London played defensive back for the Dallas Cowboys in the early 1980s.
