George Welsh passed today and will be missed by all UVA football fans forever. Can' talk Wahoo football without him and IMO he could have been 1 of the best coaches ever, considering what he did at Navy and UVA.

My wife and I met him once at a restaurant in Charlottesville.  He was a very classy gentleman! 

Rest in peace, sir!

I’ve been amazed at the outpouring of Hokie condolences over George Welsh’s passing.  George did something at Virginia that hadn’t been done in 30 years: turn Virginia into not only a winner, but a unique program.  May he Rest In Peace.

RIP coach Welsh...no matter if you are a Hokie or Hoo you never want to see this...he was a good coach and seemed like a good guy as well.

Lived a long life...85 years is a long time. Prayers to his family and friends from this Hokie

George Welsh took Cavalier football from laughingstock to a number #1 ranking and national credibility.  UVA was a basketball school in a basketball conference, which featured a single football power (much like today).  In what I think was UVA's greatest win, Welsh and the Hoos shocked the nation with a win over an insanely talented Florida State team in '95.
