The Daily Progress, in a story for today's editions, said Jarvis was the first person to be interviewed by Virginia Athletic Director Terry Holland to succeed Jeff Jones, who resigned a week ago after eight years as the Cavaliers' coach.

Jarvis, president of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, has led the Colonials to a 152-90 record and seven post-season appearances--four in the NCAA, three in the NIT--in eight years.
