Following a 29-23 loss to Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan announced Saturday evening it has terminated the contract of head coach Bill Cubit.
The Broncos finished this season with a 4-8 record and 2-6 in MAC play. Cubit led Western Michigan to a 51-47 record in eight seasons in Kalamazoo. He is the fifth-winningest coach in WMU history.
"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," said WMU Director of Athletics Kathy Beauregard. 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."
