Western Michigan cans Cubit

Make room Joker Phillips and Robb Akey.  You have some company on the coaching unemployment line.

Just a few hours after Western Michigan closed out it season at 4-8 with a loss to rival Eastern Michigan, the school announced via a press release that head football coach Bill Cubit was released from the remaining year of his contract on Saturday night.  Of course, that’s just a nice way of saying that the Broncos had fired their coach of eight years.

“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 athletic director Kathy Beauregard in a statement. “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.”

Cubit had an overall record of 51-47 in his eight years, with this season serving as his worst record-wise.

    That’s what happens when you lose to Eastern.
