Delaware State University Director of Athletics Candy Young has announced that the contract of head football coach Kermit Blount will not be renewed for the 2015 season.
Blount compiled a 16-29 overall record and a 13-19 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in his four years as head coach of the Hornets. DSU was 2-10 overall and finished 10th in the MEAC with a 2-6 league record this past season.
“We thank coach Blount for his service to our football program and the University the past four years, and wish him well in his future endeavors,” said Young. “The University will soon begin a national search for a new head football coach.”
Young also announced that Andrew Faison, a Hornet assistant coach this past season, will serve as interim head coach until further notice. Faison joined the DSU staff as safeties coach last spring.
