Virginia Cavaliers offensive coordinator Robert Anae is staying with Virginia.

Anae announced Tuesday he is withdrawing his name from the head coaching search at Hawaii.

He released a statement saying, “After careful consideration I am withdrawing my application for the University of Hawaii head football coach position. I have been overwhelmed with the commitment by coach Mendenhall and the leadership of (athletics director) Carla Williams. I am excited to close out our recruiting class as we continue our quest for the conference championship.”

Anae, a Hawaii native, moved with Bronco Mendenhall, BYU’s head coach from 2005-2015, to Virginia in 2016 to become the Cavaliers’ offensive coordinator.

UVA’s offense under Anae in 2019 averaged 32.1 points and 388.4 yards per game. Virginia finished 9-5 and reached the ACC championship game and clinched a sport in the Orange Bowl in Mendenhall’s fourth season with the Cavaliers.
