Good friends coaching tonight (impressive stat)
- by Doug Samuels 2 years ago
Al Golden said that there isn't another coach in the country that he has spent more time in the film room with than Virginia's Mike London, which makes plenty of sense when you take a look at their history.
Golden and London were on the same defensive staffs while at Boston College (1997-99) and then spent years together again at Virginia working under Al Groh (2001-04). Golden served as the defensive coordinator and London served as the defensive line coach. After Golden left to take the Temple head coaching job, London left his stint in the NFL to take over the defensive coordinator role, and eventually (after winning a national championship at Richmond) as head coach.
The game will mark the third time this season that Mike London has met a coach that he was once on staff with. The other two times include meetings with William and Mary's Jimmy Laycock (a 40-3 win) and NC State's Tom O'Brien (a 14-28 loss).
Here's an impressive stat for you, we noticed that if Golden wins this game, they will both have exactly 32 wins as head coaches.
The Cavaliers and Hurricanes will kickoff at 8 eastern on ESPN.
