Dave Brock named Delaware head coach

By Matt Sugam

For the fourth time in four years, Rutgers will be looking for a new offensive coordinator.

After just one season at Rutgers, Dave Brock was officially named the head coach at Delaware at a news conference today.

Brock had been said to be the front runner on the Blue Hen’s list of candidates according to The News Journal, and it comes as no surprise that he has been named the head coach.

“I am very excited for Dave and Karen. Dave Brock is the perfect fit for The University of Delaware and will run a football program they will always be proud of,” Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood said in a statement released by Rutgers. “I have two lasting memories from my time in Newark, great people and championship football. I know the people are still great and I know Dave will bring championships back to Delaware.”

This will be Brock’s first time as a head coach.

“I had an opportunity to end up at Rutgers with Kyle, but this opportunity comes up, and maybe for lack of a better way of looking at it, the geography, the opportunity, they kind of all met,” Brock said. “And again, I don’t think anybody could be more excited about the opportunity.”
