Delaware Head Coach KC Keeler,71-41 for the Blue Hens since 2002.
It turns out that back in 2007 Bill Martin did contact Delaware HC KC Keeler about the Michigan job, and that he had been one of three key candidates in the final stretch. Here's KC Keeler's comments from Delaware online:
"That whole Michigan thing was for real," Keeler said."If [current coach Rich] Rodriguez hadn't taken the job, I was one of three they were going to bring in for an interview. That was Michigan. That was pretty flattering."
Keeler insists that he is not considering and would not consider the Michigan football opportunity because of his young family and their roots to the local community in Delaware.
This week Keeler is preparing his Fightin' Blue Hens (12-2) for another FCS Championship game final against Eastern Washington Friday night, January 7.
