WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - One day after being named the 30th head football coach in program history, the College of William & Mary officially welcomed new Tribe Head Football Coach Mike London on Tuesday at Zable Stadium.

London, a former assistant coach (1990-1993) under legendary Tribe head coach Jimmye Laycock, understands he has large shoes to fill.

"I embrace the fact Coach is such a big part of what's gone on here," London said Tuesday. "Obviously there are new opportunities here for the program to develop and forge a new identity. I will never forget a man who was very impact in my life. I look forward to bringing victories and great moments to William & Mary as well."
