Coach Tom O'Brien has been officially hired as a football assistant at the University of Virginia, just over a month after being fired as head coach at N.C. State.
O'Brien, who worked at UVA previously under George Welsh, is set to join Mike London's staff as tight ends coach and associate head coach. London worked for O'Brien at Boston College and the two have remained friends.
North Carolina State waived his non-compete clause, paving the way for his move to Virginia, and his buyout was reportedly reduced from around $1 million bucks to about $200,000.
He will bring defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta with him from N.C. State. He will serve in the same capacity in Charlottesville.
The Cavaliers also announced that Jeff Banks will be the team's special teams coordinator and running backs coach. Also, former UVA quarerback Marques Hagans has been promoted to wide receivers coach, which is a full-time position.
