The 2015 season will be an important one for Mike London, who is hoping to lead Virginia to its first bowl appearance since 2011. London was retained last November after leading the Cavaliers to five wins — more than doubling the win total from the year prior — but enters this fall on the hot seat once again.
The sixth-year UVa coach discussed his job security on Tuesday in an interview with The David Glenn Show.
“There’s an expectancy of results,” London said. “Obviously, I’m in a profession that you have to have results, so I’m accountable, I’m responsible for it, and I’m obligated to make sure that this team is successful.”
Virginia’s non-conference schedule is among the toughest in the country. The team will open the year with a trip to UCLA and will also host Notre Dame, Boise State and William and Mary.
“I embrace that challenge,” the head coach stated. “I never ran away from a challenge, whether it being as a police officer or personal life situations. This is one that has to be met with results, and we’re working to get that done.”
London also discussed the topic of transfer players, and he revealed that former UVa assistant and NC State head coach Tom O’Brien has taken up hot yoga since his retirement. Click below to hear the full interview:
