Tributes pour in on news of passing of UVA football coach George Welsh

George Welsh passed away on Wednesday at the age of 85. The legendary former UVA coach retired in 2000 as the ACC’s winningest coach, taking a program that had posted two winning seasons in the previous three decades to a bowl game in his third year on the job, and leading the ‘Hoos to a three-week run as the #1 team in the land in 1990.

Tributes are pouring in from around Wahoo Nation and the greater sports world.
