Is the Mike London Era at Howard University coming to an end after just two seasons?

Howard coach Mike London is rumored to be the top candidate for the job opening at William & Mary, according to FootballScoop.com. W&M is looking for a replacement for Jimmye Laycock, who is retiring after 39 years as the head coach.

This news comes just hours after Howard finished its season with a 56-55 loss to Bryant. It finished 4-6 in Year Two under London after being predicted to finish second heading into the season. Its record in his two seasons combined is 11-10 after he led the team to a 7-4 season in 2016. His first win was the biggest, as Howard pulled off one of the biggest upsets in college football history.

Prior to his time at Howard, London was previously a head coach at the University of Virginia and the University of Richmond, which he led to the FCS national title in 2010.

William & Mary is an FCS school located in Williamsburg, VA and competes in the Colonial Athletic Association, the same conference as Richmond. It completed the 2018 season 4-6.
