Former Virginia receivers coach Latrell Scott will be named head coach at Richmond on Wednesday, ESPN.com has learned. This hire makes sense as Scott coached the wide receivers for three years at Richmond before joining Tennessee's staff, and he has ties to former Richmond coaches Dave Clawson and Mike London, who is now at Virginia.
And suddenly the coaching circle gets a lot smaller. Clawson left Richmond to take over as offensive coordinator at Tennessee, and guess who he replaced? David Cutcliffe, who left Tennessee to take over at Duke.
This move will also squash the rumor that Virginia Tech offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring is leaving Blacksburg. So far London has five assistants on staff -- four he brought with him from Richmond and two he retained from Al Groh's staff (Anthony Poindexter and Bob Price). Specific assignments haven't been made yet.
