Bronco Mendenhall is bringing six of his BYU assistants with him to Virginia. But he also made two key decisions to bolster his staff: hiring former East Carolina coach Ruffin McNeill to coach linebackers, and keeping receivers coach Marques Hagans. Both should pay big dividends -- McNeill for his experience as a head coach, and Hagans for his ties to the program and recruiting expertise. Mendenhall has spent the majority of his career out West, so it is smart to have two assistants who can help with their ties to the East and South. Plus, it doesn't hurt that McNeill has two wins over rival Virginia Tech, which has beaten the Cavaliers 12 straight.
After a season in which Virginia couldn't get rolling, changes will be needed on both sides of the ball.
