Dover, Del.– Delaware State introduced veteran college assistant coach Kenneth Carter new head coach Thursday.
“With this appointment, a new chapter begins for the Hornet football program,” DSU president Harry Williams said. “We are excited about the future, not only concerning what this means for DSU football, but also in terms of the overall success of our student-athletes.”
Carter most recently served as passing game/co-special teams coordinator/wide receivers coach at Youngstown State during the 2014 season.
“Kenneth Carter is an outstanding motivator with a proven record of success,” said Delaware State athletic director Candy Young. “He has the knowledge and energy to return our football program to its past success.”
Carter replaces Kermit Blount, who was let go after four seasons with the Hornets.
“I am extremely excited about this new chapter in my football career” Carter said. “There are only 250 such opportunities in Division I football, so it is truly a blessing. I plan to give my best to the university and the program. I’m looking forward to getting started.”
DSU was 2-10 in 2014 under Blount.
