Newark, DE (Sports Network) - Delaware will name Rutgers offensive coordinator
Dave Brock as its new head football coach on Friday, according to a published
The News Journal reported late Thursday that Delaware players were told earlier
in the day they would meet their new coach on Friday.
Delaware has been without a head coach since K.C. Keeler was fired on Jan. 7
following his 11th season.
Brock, 45, has been a collegiate coach for 22 years, but never as a head coach.
He coached against Delaware's former conference rival, Hofstra, in 1995 and
Brock has spent 11 years on the FBS level, including stints at Temple, North
Carolina, Kansas State and Boston College before his one season at Rutgers last
year. He was on the Boston College staff from 2009-11 while new Delaware
athletic director Eric Ziady was an assistant athletic director.
Brock played collegiately at Ferrum (Va.) College and graduated from Salisbury
Keeler compiled an 88-52 record and led Delaware to the 2003 FCS (then NCAA
Division I-AA) national title as well as appearances in the 2007 and 2010
national championship games.
