College football

UD’s Cubit steps down: After spending the past year as the assistant head coach and in charge of the running backs, Bill Cubit, a former standout for the Blue Hens in the 1970s, is resigning from the University of Delaware football coaching staff.

“Having the opportunity to be a part of this program for the past year was truly an honor. Ever since being a student-athlete here, I’ve always loved this University and this football program and that will never change, being a Blue Hen is always something I’ll be proud of. I’m excited to see what this program will accomplish in the near future,” Cubit said.

“Coach Cubit was a great asset to our program and our student-athletes over the past year. His knowledge and experiences, along with his love for the University was invaluable not only for our student-athletes, but our staff as a whole,” head coach Danny Rocco said. “We’re grateful for Coach Cubit’s work and dedication to our program and this University and wish nothing but the best for his future.”

Cubit’s impact on the running backs group was immediate, with three different players (Will Knight, DeJoun Lee and Andre Robinson) rushing for 100+ yards in a game and redshirt freshman Will Knight earning two Freshman All-American honors.
