Per a tweet from Football Scoop on Sunday afternoon, Virginia will add former Cavalier linebacker Byron Thweatt to its staff.

"At UVA, sources tell us that Richmond LBs coach Byron Thweatt will join Mike London’s staff," the website tweeted at 3:46 p.m.

Thweatt has been on Richmond's staff since 2007, most recently serving as linebackers coach. 

A message left on Thweatt's cell phone has not been returned. 

Thweatt was a two-year captain at Virginia, earning second-team All-ACC honors in 2000. He briefly played in the NFL for the Tennessee Titans in 2001.

His coaching highlights include helping Spider linebackers Darius McMillan and Eric Wright earn All-CAA honors in 2012. Thweatt was Richmond's recruiting coordinator from 2010-11. 

UVa has a pair of openings on its staff after Vincent Brown and Anthony Poindexter accepted positions at UConn on Friday.
