2/3/11 - Signed, Sealed, Delivered, 3 Feb 2011 [cached]
Chip West has been recruiting his native Hampton Roads for most of the past 12 years, first for Colgate, then James Madison, Old Dominion and, now, Virginia.
But West never had a signing day like this: Nine of the Cavaliers' 26 recruits hail from the 757. A graduate of Kecoughtan High, where he played for current Virginia Tech assistant Curt Newsome, West deflected credit and dismissed any suggestion that Virginia rules the area. "I'm always learning," West said Wednesday. "I don't have all the answers. I just try to work as hard as I can, build the best relationships that I can and build trust." West, who coaches the Cavaliers' cornerbacks, was well aware that U.Va. had struggled to sell Hampton Roads prospects under former coach Al Groh.
That wasn't the case when West played at Kecoughtan and Cavaliers assistant Tom O'Brien mined the area for players such as Terry Kirby, Chris Slade and Jason Wallace.
"You view it as a challenge," West said. "No question, it's a competitive business. All of us love to win." "Do you feel like you won today? I asked. "We have a ways to go," West said.
"No question it's huge," West said. "It's a great thing.
So is Chip West, the UVa assistant who was assigned "757" as his recruiting territory.
West, who had recruited Hampton Roads for James Madison and most recently Old Dominion, said he was aware of Virginia's reputation for indifferent recruiting results in his area. He viewed it as a challenge.
"Always," he said.

If there were any doubts Chip West would hit the ground running as soon as he was given the green light Tuesday to begin his duties as an assistant football coach at the University of Virginia, he answered the question right away.
"Hey, what can I do for you? said West, a 39-year-old Kecoughtan High graduate and Hampton native who has been hired to join U.Va.'s defensive coaching staff by Bethel High graduate and U.Va. coach Mike London.
It's no small task, but West says he's ready for the gig.

West joins UVa staff
It would have taken nothing more than a glimpse into the past for first-year Virginia coach Mike London to visualize why hiring Chip West as an assistant coach made sense.
Once an outsider in the coaching world - as was London for a period - West eventually got his break in the profession and has emerged as one of the most diligent recruiters in the country in Virginia's Tidewater region.
On Tuesday, London made it official that West, 39, would be the fifth coach to join his staff.
West is leaving his post as the assistant head coach, recruiting coordinator and defensive backs coach at Old Dominion, a program that just completed its first season of football at the NCAA FCS level.
"West has a measured amount of success as both a coach and a recruiter," London said in a release.
Prior to joining the newly-created staff at ODU, West was the defensive backs coach at James Madison from 2004-06, coached the secondary at Fordham in 2003 and was the wide receivers coach at Colgate in the four years prior.
A graduate of Kecoughtan High and Livingstone (N.C.) College, West is excited about the challenge that awaits to improve Virginia's recruiting efforts and the reunion with London, whom he considers a close friend.
"It is an honor to be a part of the University of Virginia and I am every excited to join coach London's staff," West said in a release.
West is an excellent addition,like a younger Curt Newsome.
