Former University of Maine linebacker Dennis Dottin-Carter has been named the Delaware Football interim Head Coach after the school fired Dave Brock on Sunday.

Dottin-Carter has been with the Blue Hens for the past four seasons and was holding the position as co-defensive coordinator and defensive line coach before the promotion.  Delaware had lost its past four games and Brock had compiled a record of 19-22 during his tenure with the Blue Hens.  The contract for Brock ran through the 2017 season.

Dottin-Carter played for UMaine during two Atlantic 10 titles in 2001 and 2002 and was named to the first team All-Atlantic 10 as a linebacker in 2002.  The Cambridge, Massachusetts native had held the role of defensive line and special teams coach while a part of the UMaine coaching staff.

With the move to head coach, Dottin-Carter also becomes the first African-American to hold that position with Delaware Football.

The Blue Hens will face Stony Brook at home this weekend as they look to improve on their 2-4 record.
