Richmond head coach Mike London has been named the 2008 National Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association for the Football Championship Subdivision. London is well deserving of the honor, after an exceptional first season at the head of the Spider program.

London led the Spiders to their first national championship in school history, as Richmond topped Montana back on December 19. They finished the season with a 13-3 record, ending the year on a nine game winning streak. The Spiders finished CAA play with a 6-2 mark, good enough for third in the South Division.

The 2008 season marked London's first as a head coach at any school. Prior to that, he was the defensive coordinator at Virginia under Al Groh.
