Dover, DE (SportsNetwork.com) - Delaware State head football coach Kermit Blount will not return for the 2015 season, the school announced Monday.

Athletic director Candy Young said Blount's contract will not be renewed.

Blount compiled a record of 16-29 overall with a 13-19 mark in Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference play during his four years with the Hornets. Delaware State was just 2-10 this year, including 2-6 in the MEAC.

"We thank coach Blount for his service to our football program and the university the past four years, and wish him well in his future endeavors," said Young. "The university will soon begin a national search for a new head football coach."

Andrew Faison, an assistant coach this past season, will serve as interim head coach.
