Dave Borbely joins the Virginia football staff after spending the past four seasons at Colorado.
Jan. 18, 2006
Charlottesville - Virginia head football coach Al Groh announced today the hiring of Dave Borbely as an assistant coach. Borbely will coach the Cavaliers' offensive line. For the last four seasons Borbely, 46, worked as the offensive line coach at Colorado for Gary Barnett. His resume also includes coaching experience at Notre Dame, Stanford, Tulane, Temple and Rice.
Borbely's wide-range of coaching experiences has allowed him to develop an extensive recruiting base, including the northeast and west coast. He has coached for some of the top names in collegiate football including Barnett, Tyrone Willingham and Phillip Fulmer.
"Dave brings a lot of experience not only as a coach, but as a recruiter from high-profile programs with very strong academic reputations," Groh said. "He knows the type of student-athlete we want to have on our team, who can also excel in a demanding academic setting. His background is similar to the type of offensive system we have in place and at the same time he has some fresh ideas that can enhance our schemes. He will be a good addition to our staff."
During Borbely's four years at Colorado the Buffs made three bowl appearances, and won the Big 12 Northern Division on three occasions. In 2002, his first season with the Buffs, Colorado finished sixth in the nation in rushing. Last year he coached Mark Fenton, a first-team All-Big 12 performer who was one of six finalists for the Dave Riminigton Award presented to the nation's top center.
Prior to his stint at Colorado, Borbely was the offensive line coach at Notre Dame from 1998 to 2001. He coached the entire offensive line in 1998 and 1999 and solely the guards and centers in 2000 and 2001. While with the Irish, he coached in two New Year's Day bowls ('99 Gator and '01 Fiesta). During each of his first seasons with the Irish the Notre Dame offense ranked in the top-30 nationally in rushing.
From 1995 to 1997 Borbely was the offensive line coach at Stanford where he helped the Cardinal to Liberty and Sun Bowl invitations following the '95 and '96 seasons. In 1996, Borbely had two linemen Brad Badger and Nate Paks selected in the NFL draft.
His previous assistant coaching stops included Tulane from 1992 to 1994, Temple from 1989 to 1991 and Rice from 1986 to 1988. Borbely coached briefly at Kansas in 2002 before joining the staff at Colorado.
Borbely started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Evansville from 1981 to 1982. He was the freshman defensive line coach at Pennsylvania in 1983 and received his first coaching opportunity on the Division I level as a graduate assistant for Phillip Fulmer at Tennessee from 1984 to 1985.
A native of Hammond, Ind., Borbely earned his bachelor of arts degree in history from DePauw (Indiana) University and a master of arts in secondary education from the University of Evansville in 1982. At DePauw, he earned four letters in football and twice was named the team's top lineman. He and his five, Bev, have three children.
