The 2009 season was Virginia’s worst in 27 years. From AP-
Virginia has fired Al Groh after nine seasons as football coach at his alma mater.
Groh’s dismissal Sunday comes less than 24 hours after the Cavaliers (3-9, 2-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) finished their worst season since going 2-9 in 1982 with a 42-13 loss to rival Virginia Tech.
Virginia lost its final six games and finished with a losing record for the third time in four years. Groh beat Virginia Tech just once in nine games during his tenure.
It seems clear Virginia had regressed the last few seasons. The need for a new coach in Charlottesville looks justified IMHO.
