Virginia has hired Brigham Young’s Bronco Mendenhall as its new football coach, the school announced Friday.

Mendenhall, 49, who replaces Mike London, was 99-42 in his 11 seasons as head coach at BYU to rank 12th in total wins among all FBS teams during that time. Mendenhall led the Cougars to two Mountain West championships (2006, ’07) and 10 bowl games (6-4). He was the 2006 MWC coach of the year.

“Bronco Mendenhall’s teams have consistently won at a high level and he’s demonstrated the ability to create a strategic vision to build a program and then implement his plan to be successful,” Cavaliers athletics director Craig Littlepage said in a statement. “His emphasis on the overall development of student athletes and a commitment to academic achievement is in line with our goals of Uncompromised Excellence. We’re excited to begin a new era of Virginia football and support Bronco and his staff.”
