Position:
Wide Receivers Coach

Joining the Cavaliers on the sideline this fall is Wayne Lineburg. A 1996 UVa graduate, Lineburg returned to his alma mater in March 2007 to coach the wide receivers coach. He replaced John Garrett who was named tight ends coach for the Dallas Cowboys.

Lineburg comes to UVa after spending three years at the University of Richmond where he served as offensive coordinator and running backs coach. In 2005 the Spiders gained a school-record 4,957 yards of total offense and scored 44 touchdowns. The offensive unit averaged 381.3 yards per game and ranked 41st in the country. Lineburg's offense averaged more than 330 yards per game every year and had an 800-yard rusher each season. He came to Richmond after serving as running backs coach and recruiting coordinator for four seasons (2000-03) on Jimmye Laycock's staff at William & Mary.

A native of Radford, Va., Lineburg graduated from UVa in 1996 with a degree in government. A quarterback who lettered in 1995, he was played on three bowl teams and was a member of the 1995 ACC championship team. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at UVa on George Welsh's staff from 1998-99.

His father, Norman, was the long-time football coach at Radford High School and is a member of the Virginia High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame. Lineburg played for his father at Radford HS where he earned all-district honors as a quarterback.
