Eight days after former head football coach Mike London took the same position at the University of Virginia, University of Richmond wide receiver Kevin Grayson announced London's replacement. That's because Richmond athletic director Jim Miller decided Grayson would be the right person to introduce new head football coach Latrell Scott, who served as the wide receivers coach for the Spiders during Grayson's first two seasons. "On behalf of the football team, we are really excited about this selection," Grayson said. Scott, a 34-year-old Richmond native who most recently coached the wide receivers at the University of Virginia and the University of Tennessee, has been named the 34th head coach in program history. "This is a very exciting day for me and my family," Scott said.
The University of Richmond athletic department has chosen its new head football coach and will announce the decision at 4 p.m.
