Bill Cubit dismissed as Western Michigan head coach
Posted by: Pete Roussel on November 17, 2012
Western Michigan head coach Bill Cubit has been dismissed.
I have confirmed that athletic director Kathy Beauregard informed Cubit of her decision following the Broncos loss to Eastern Michigan on Saturday.
Western Michigan finished this season 4-8. In eight years as head coach, Cubit was 51-48.
He led the Broncos to bowls games in 2006, 2008, and 2011.
Beauregard stated, "I want to thank Coach Cubit for his years of service and recognize the work he and all of his assistants have done over the years in support of our student-athletes. I also want to thank Nancy and the entire Cubit family for what they have meant to this community. Although this is a time of transition, the expectations of our department remain the same. Our vision and mission is winning division and conference titles and growing our number of postseason bowls. We continue to value student-athlete success academically and expect them to be great citizens in this community."
ESPN's Joe Schad first reported the dismissal.
