London to Williamsburg

By Ashley K. Speed

Mike London was recently named the new head coach of the William & Mary football team.

London, a national championship–winning coach, returns to Williamsburg after serving as Howard University’s head coach since 2017.

A former William & Mary assistant coach, London replaced longtime Head Coach Jimmye Laycock ’70, who retired in November after 39 years at the university.

In 2008 London won a national title as head coach at the University of Richmond and earned Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year honors at the University of Virginia in 2011.
