Newark, DE – Wednesday afternoon Danny Rocco will be introduced as the 25th head football coach in the history of the University of Delaware. Rocco leaves a Richmond program he led for the past five seasons. He took the Spiders to the playoffs in each of the last three.
It is hoped that Rocco will end the Blue Hens post season drought. The last time Delaware made the playoffs was 2010 under current Sam Houston State Head Coach K.C. Keeler. The Hens lost to Eastern Washington in the FCS National Championship game. This past Saturday, Eastern Washington defeated Roccco’s Richmond team.
In an eleven year coaching career at Liberty and Richmond, Rocco has compiled a 90-42 record.
