As he describes it, Virginia defensive line coach Clint Sintim is living a dream. The former Cavalier standout has found his way home to his alma mater and old stomping grounds, and now he’s ready to help lead the next generation of Wahoos to greener pastures.
Sintim takes over for Vic So’oto, who departed for Southern California in the offseason, and he inherits the deepest, most experienced group of D-linemen the UVA program has seen in a long time.
“I’m living my dream right now,” said Sintim, who earned a Super Bowl championship ring with the Giants in 2011, “and since I retired and I got into coaching, the goal was always to come back here to Virginia and then be on the staff in some capacity and make a contribution. So when Coach gave me that call in mid-February to come down and interview, my wife and I came down, we met with the staff, and then shortly after when he offered me the job, it didn’t take much to say, ‘We’re coming.’
“So I’m excited to be here. I’m excited to contribute, and whatever role I can play to help his team be better than what it was, okay, that’s what I’m here to do.”
