NEWARK, Del. (AP) - The University of Delaware has fired head football coach K.C. Keeler after 11 seasons.
Keeler was 86-52 with the Blue Hens and led them to a Division I-AA national title in 2003 and two subsequent championship game appearances in 2007 and 2010.
Athletics director Eric Ziady says Keeler's success at the school will ``forever be etched in the hearts and minds of the Blue Hen faithful,'' but that a change in direction is needed. Delaware went 12-10 over the past seasons and missed the post-season in four of the last five seasons.
Keeler was a linebacker for Delaware from 1978-1980. He served as head coach at Rowan University for nine seasons before taking over at Delaware in 2002.
Among Keeler's notable players is current Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.
