CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – After over a month of searching UVA Football has announced Terry Heffernan will take over as the program's offensive line coach. Heffernan comes to Charlottesville after spending the last two seasons as the offensive line coach at Stanford.

Heffernan has had a plethora of experience in both the college and professional ranks. Before getting into college ball Heffernan spent two years with the Buffalo Bills, helping them to the AFC Championship Game in 2020. In addition to the Bills, Heffernan also spent three seasons with the Detroit Lions. 

In addition to his time at Stanford, he served as Eastern Kentucky’s assistant head coach and offensive line coach in 2016-17, before a promotion to associate head coach and offensive line coach in 2018.

“My family and I are very excited for the opportunity to come to Virginia,” Heffernan said. “It is not very often that you have the opportunity to join a program, and a University, with such rich tradition both as an institution and athletically. I am very excited to be a part of what Coach Elliott is building and about the possibilities of where the Virginia program can go.”

Heffernan replaces Garrett Tujague who spent 7 seasons as UVA's offensive line coach.
