On October 18, 2018, Bronco and Holly Mendenhall announced their $500,000 commitment to the Football Operations Center as part of the new $180 million athletics Master Plan project. Their gift is the first major gift to the Football Operations Center and is the largest gift made by a head coach.
“Holly and I are excited to be a part of the process that transforms Virginia football,” Mendenhall said. “We love developing young people through football and the new Football Operations Center will provide our young men a home where they can develop into exceptional football players, students and leaders.”

MATCH THE MENDENHALLS
“I like the idea of “and,” not “or.” We will have fantastic students, fantastic people, and a fantastic football team, and it’s not “or.” You’re not going to just have academics or football, and it won’t just be football or character, and it won’t just be character or being woven into the fabric of our community. It’ll be “and.” I want all of that.”
Head Football Coach Bronco Mendenhall
