Virginia football assistant coaches Anthony Poindexter and Vincent Brown are leaving their positions with the Cavaliers to join Bob Diaco’s staff at the University of Connecticut, a source close to the program confirmed to The Daily Progress on Friday.
Poindexter has been with Virginia as a coach for the past 10 seasons. He was a standout safety for the Cavaliers from 1994-98, twice earning first-team All-American honors. The Lynchburg native had his No. 3 jersey retired in 2009.
