No way London stays at Richmond for the long-haul. No disrespect to the FCS, but the guy is too good of a coach (and has too good of a pedigree) to not make the transition up to an FBS HC position within the next few years.

Adam, I think you're correct. We saw how quick Don Brown at UMass jumped at the chance to get to a FBS program even as an assistant. He probably improved his salary as an assistant (DC) at Boston College over his Head Coach position at UMass. I hope the NCAA does away with the split between D-1 programs but accepts the FCS format to determine a real National Championship!

Anonymous, you're correct that Brown went to Maryland as a DC. I don't know what I was thinking????
