Former Chief Joins Virginia Coaching Staff

There’s no plan for professional football this season, but the college game will go on as normal with spring practices taking place across the nation.  When Virginia opens up Wednesday morning, they will have a new coach in former Kansas City Chiefs WR Marques Hagans, one of the school’s most prolific pass catchers.

Hagans graduated from UVA in 2005 with a degree in anthropology, and while serving on [head coach Mike] London’s staff as a graduate assistant he will pursue a graduate degree in professional studies as soon as the next semester begins this summer.

‘Biscuit’, as he is known to his family and teammates, spent 3 years with the St. Louis Rams after graduating.  Hagans also played for the Kansas City Chiefs, as well as the Washington Redskins.

During his short stay in Kansas City, Hagans had all of one catch for seven yards.  He did possess the ability to serve as a “Wildcat” option, but was released just as the Miami Dolphins were bringing the offense back into style.

Along with Hagans, the other Chiefs connections to Virginia can be found on the current roster.  Both tackle Branden Albert and RB Thomas Jones were standouts for the Cavaliers.
