Thursday turned out to be a great news day for Virginia football fans.

First, Tony Elliott announced his new defensive coordinator, John Rudzinski from Air Force (see related story), then Elliott got some good news of his own when on Thursday night, UVA quarterback Brennan Armstrong announced on his Instagram account that he is returning to the program.

Armstrong had kept Cavalier fans in suspense since before the canceled Fenway Bowl as to whether he would return or declare for the NFL Draft. Even in his announcement, Armstrong teased Wahoo fans to the end, as he noted how much he thanked them for the support over the years, how much he has loved his coaches and teammates, almost making it sound like he was departing.

Finally, he confirmed he is returning for another year. Armstrong rewrote most of UVA’s passing and total offense records this past season while leading one of the most explosive offenses in the country.

Some more potential good news when former Alabama offensive lineman Tommy Brown said that he will visit UVA on Sunday. He is also visiting Colorado before he heads to Charlottesville, according to a website that follows Alabama football.
