Will the UVA Assistants Follow London Out?

With Mike London's resignation on Sunday, HooNation takes a look at whether or not the assistants will be retained.

With any coaching search comes the question: will the assistants be retained? As of 5 P.M. on Sunday, none of the Virginia assistants were fired. If you remember when Al Groh was let go a couple years back all of his assistants apart from Anthony Poindexter and Bob Price left almost immediately as well. 

According to UVA pledge Ben Knutson, who talked to athletic director Craig Littlepage after the news of London's resignation, Littlepage told him "that he wanted to keep as many assistants as possible."

Before anyone looks too much into that statement, it does not mean Littlepage will keep all of the assistants after the new hire or push for retention. A couple of sources tell me, Littlepage will leave the decision to the new hire, but he is definitely more involved this time than the last coaching search.
