Why You Should Know Him: When you only have three head coaches since World War II, you know you’ve got a consistently winning program...KC Keeler, Delaware’s Head Coach, became the fourth two years ago, following three legends: Bill Murray, Dave Nelson, and Tubby Raymond.

All three are in College Football’s Hall of Fame. Murray coached before and after World War II wile Nelson arrived in 1951 as Delaware won their first Lambert Cup a few years later. Raymond became Head Coach in 1966 and over nearly four decades won 300 games and three National Championships. Keeler, when he became Head Coach two years ago, seemed to have his work cut out for him.

In only his second season Keeler continued the tradition of Blue Hen football, winning the Division l-AA National Championship last December. It was Delaware’s sixth national title in their storied program.

Keeler has, in a relatively short period of time, become a major player in the college coaching profession: in addition to a championship at Delaware, he honed his skills as a Head Coach at Rowan College where he compiled an 88-21-l record, winning nearly 81% of games played.
