Coach Mike London talked to the media in his weekly press conference here is the full video from…
"I'm the Right Man for the Job"
London continues to come under scrutiny this season after the team dropped to 2-5 after a disappointing loss to Duke on Saturday-where the Cavaliers dropped a 22 point lead in the second half.
"I believe that the process that's going on here is one that, although painstakingly slow, is a process that will be successful," said London.
As many call for London's firing, Virginia athletic director, Craig Littlepage has backed the head coach saying London is safe regardless on how the season ends.
" I'm very appreciative that the administrators and people that make those types of decisions have the utmost confidence in me. "
With the full backing of the men in charge, London is ready to look forward to Georgia Tech this weekend in hopes of changing the Cavaliers' fortune.
"So I'm always excited about the challenge that presents itself of whether there's negativity or whatever it may be," London continued. "Embrace the adversity, embrace it, look it in the eye, and tell the players, let's go, because the only thing you can do is get ready for the next game, get ready for the next challenge.
" And if they see that in me, if they see that in the coaches, then they have an opportunity themselves to show that when they play on the field, and we start moving forward here."
London is 8-19 against the ACC and the Cavaliers are 6-21 against FBS competition.
