CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - University of Virginia head football coach George Welsh announced several changes in responsibilities among his assistant coaches today.
Art Markos, UVa's defensive backfield coach since 1991, has been moved to wide receivers coach. Markos moved to Charlottesville when Welsh took over the head coaching reins in 1982 and is the lone remaining member of Welsh's original staff. He was the defensive line coach from 1982-85, the defensive ends coach from 1986-88 and the defensive ends/strong safety coach in 1989-90. Markos has coached four All-Americans at UVa, including punter Will Brice, defensive backs Percy Ellsworth and Anthony Poindexter and defensive end Ray Savage.
Bob Price, UVa's running backs coach the last three seasons, takes over for Markos as the defensive backs coach. Among the positions he has held in his coaching career are a four-year stint as defensive coordinator, secondary coach and special teams coordinator at Nevada-Las Vegas from 1986-89 and a year (1990) as the secondary coach at California. He was a secondary coach for three different teams in the Canadian Football League in the 1990s-Ottawa Roughriders (1991), Saskatchewan Roughriders (1992-93), and Baltimore Stallions (1994-95). He was the head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes in 1996 before coming to UVa in 1997.
Andree Powell moves to running backs coach, a position he coached at UVa in 1996, his first in Charlottesville. That season he coached Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year Tiki Barber as Barber led the ACC in rushing and all-purpose yards. Prior to coming to Virginia, Powell was running backs coach at several colleges, including VMI (1992), Rhode Island (1993-94) and Army (1995). He coached Virginia's wide receivers the last three seasons.
Three other coaches return to the positions they held two years ago. Rick Lantz, UVa's defensive coordinator since 1991, will coach the linebackers, while last season's linebackers coach, David Turner, has been assigned to the defensive tackles. Turner coached the defensive tackles in 1998. Ty Smith, last season's defensive line coach, will coach the defensive ends, a position he coached at UVa in 1998.
