McNeill, Anae joins Mendenhall's new staff
Ruffin McNeill and Robert Anae, two original members of Mike Leach’s Texas Tech coaching staff, were announced Saturday as new hires at Virginia.
McNeill, who had just been fired as head coach at his alma mater East Carolina, will be the assistant head coach and inside linebackers coach for new Cavaliers coach Bronco Mendenhall.
Anae is one of six assistants following Mendenhall from Brigham Young to Virginia. He’ll be the Cavaliers’ offensive coordinator and inside receivers coach, a position he’s held for nine of the past 11 years while working under Mendenhall at BYU.
