Former Boston College OC Dave Brock New Delaware Blue Hens Coach

Ed Mulholland-US PRESSWIRE

Former Boston College OC the next head coach at Delaware. Go Blue Hens!

Former Boston College and current Rutgers offensive coordinator Dave Brock has been named the next Delaware football. Brock replaces K.C. Keeler, dismissed earlier this month after compiling an 88-52 record in 11 seasons at UD. Last season the Blue Hens finished the year with a 5-6 record, 2-6 in the Colonial Athletic Association.

The 45-year old Brock will be introduced at a 2:30 press conference at the school.

Brock served as Rutgers offensive coordinator for one year after leaving the Eagles' football program. Despite moving on to the team's fourth offensive coordinator in as many seasons (and fifth in six years), Rutgers blog On The Banks is ... excited.

"Former offensive coordinator (and Delaware assistant, for that matter) is the worst coordinator that I have ever seen at the college or pro level of football. The bulk of the criticism has stemmed from a perception of overtly conservative game planning, which admittedly is hard to determine whether that is coming from Brock, or head coach Kyle Flood. Brock was on hand for similar results at BC two years ago, but there were extenuating circumstances (he was the interim OC), and they had atrocious skill position talent. It's not completely implausible to suggest that Brock could be a successful head coach, especially considering that role may require different skills than coordinating an offense."

Brock's 21-year coaching career has taken him to North Carolina, Temple, Hofstra, Kansas State, Boston College and Rutgers. On the Heights, Brock served as the Eagles' tight end coach from 2009-11 before taking the reins of the offense on an interim basis for the majority of the 2011 season (Rogers'd). The tight end coach is credited with developing BC tight ends Chris Pantale and Lars Anderson, as well as finding and recruiting QB Dave Shinskie.

New Delaware Athletic Director Eric Ziady, who made the hire, also comes over from BC where he served as senior Associate Athletics Director of Business Operations under DeFilippo.
