After two seasons at Howard, head coach Mike London is moving on.

As first reported by FootballScoop and confirmed by ESPN, London is expected to be named the next coach at William & Mary. The school is expected to make an official announcement on Monday.


London will replace Jimmye Laycock, who is retiring after 39 seasons at the school.

“I want to thak you for your support and appreciation of the football program over the last two years,” London said in a statement posted on Twitter. “It is difficult to leave a place and people that hold a special place in my heart, but the program will be in a great position moving forward.”

In two seasons at Howard, London went 11-10 overall and 10-5 in the MEAC.

Before his brief stint at Howard, London previously was the head coach at Virginia for six seasons, going 27-46. He also spent two seasons at Richmond, winning the FCS national title in 2008.
