Virginia has hired BYU graduate assistant Shane Hunter to serve as DL coach.
Hunter had been part of the BYU staff alongside HC Bronco Mendenhall for the last three years, serving as a sounding board on the defensive line and in special teams. He'll stand by his man, joining Mendenhall at Virginia. Mendenhall called him a "rising star in the profession" and a "great addition to the staff." The Cavaliers were initially courting Navy DL coach Shaun Nua, but he'll be staying with the Midshipmen. Mon, Dec 21, 2015 03:13:00 PM

Virginia has named BYU's Bronco Mendenhall as their next head coach.

Mendenhall's stepping in for Mike London, who resigned following the completion of the 2015 campaign. In his 11 years heading up BYU, Mendenhall held a 99-42 record. He guided the Cougars to a 9-3 record this season, despite losing QB Taysom Hill to injury in the team's opener against Nebraska. In a statement, Mendenhall indicated that he's excited to get started with the Cavaliers. "Professionally and personally I seek to embrace the highest standards in college sports, on and off the field, and I love the high standards both academically and athletically at Virginia." An introductory press conference is scheduled for Monday.

BYU HC Bronco Mendenhall indicated that Saturday's 31-0 loss to Michigan was deflating enough that he asked AD Tom Holmoe to schedule a rematch.

Saturday's blanking by Michigan marked the first time the Cougars had been shutout since losing 3-0 to Utah in 2003. That's a span of 143 games. HC Mendenhall's squad couldn't even crack the 100-yard mark on offense until the final minutes of the game. This isn't all just woeful offense, of course. The Wolverines' defense has looked like one of the best units in the country over their last three games.

BYU head coach Bronco Mendenhall said his school "would love to be in the Big 12."

"We would love to be in the Big 12," Mendenhall said told the Austin American-Statesman. "I would love to be a member of that conference. I think that would make a lot of sense. In fact, if that was your headline, that would be great." BYU left the Mountain West Conference four years ago and has been an independent since, but it now appears as though their end-game is membership in a BCS conference. The Cougars probably would have been a better fit in the Pac 12, but that conference opted for Utah and Colorado. "Our attendance is high enough. And our winning percentage is high enough," Mendenhall said. "We have the entire Salt Lake City and Utah market as well as a worldwide following because of the church. There’d be a ton to offer the Big 12, because it’s a money-generated world right now. You’re talking about an amazing kind of brand."
