Duke, Cutcliffe agree on contract extension through 2019

Posted November 21, 2012

— Duke University announced Wednesday that it has reached an agreement with head football coach David Cutcliffe to extend his contract through June 30, 2019.

“Without question, we have already made great discernible progress since David’s arrival,” Duke University Vice President and Director of Athletics Kevin White stated.

However, as we assess our future – based on prospect evaluations, ongoing recruitment activity and player development – we are extremely excited, if not euphoric! To be sure, ‘Coach Cut’ represents just a great fit at Duke. David and the staff have done an exemplary job of leading the program, while subscribing to the highest intuitional ideals, both academically and athletically.”

Cutcliffe has lead the Blue Devils to six wins this season as Duke became bowl eligible for the first time since 1994. Duke has a 5-1 record in Wallace Wade this season and earned a 33-30 victory over North Carolina.

“This business is about people, and Karen and I could not be happier with the people we’ve associated ourselves with here at Duke,” Cutcliffe said.

President Brodhead and Kevin White are the best of the best, and we are grateful for their support as we continue to build Duke’s football program. We’ve accomplished some of the goals we laid out five years ago, but are nowhere close to where we want to be.”

Since his hire on December 15, 2007, Cutcliffe has guided Duke to 21 wins – 11 more than the program’s total in the previous eight years.

In 2011, Duke landed a conference-record 19 selections to the Academic All-ACC team and, during the previous season, established a school record for home attendance with 201,248 total spectators visiting Wallace Wade Stadium. Four Blue Devils – linebacker Michael Tauiliili (2008), defensive tackle Vince Oghobaase (2009), placekicker Will Snyderwine (2010) and safety Matt Daniels (2011) – have earned All-America honors during the Cutcliffe Era.

Cutcliffe, a Birmingham, Ala. native, is a 1976 graduate of the University of Alabama. After coaching at his alma mater, Banks High School, he served 19 seasons (1982-98; 2006-07) on the staff at Tennessee and six years (1999-04) as the head coach at Ole Miss. Cutcliffe has participated in 22 bowl games, and owns a 4-1 record in bowl contests as a head coach.

    Keep denying all the problems over there if it makes you feel better.

    Forget being a Duke fan - I do have family connections to UNC and I don't like seeing the widespread corruption over there.

    What you don't understand is this...Duke Football is back. UNC's problems are still mounting. Now you have former football players stealing from the University and you think that's OK?

    I am SO glad I am a Duke Fan.

    That's 6 more years of beating Carolina football.

    I was gonna say something nice about Cut, and I will...he is doing a good job.
    He deserves what he got for all the hard work he has done. Congrats Cut!!!

    Did you just find out about UNC's quality program? Guess what??
    "Your material is old and boring." lol

    Fans didn't cause the mess, so grow up and quit blaming them!!!!

    Coach Cut has had to break through the concrete of the basement cellar to get the Duke football program where it is now. It's going to take more time to get it to the level where Harbaugh took Stanford (Duke of the West). I honestly believe that Coach Cut can get the program close to that same level of play.

    Time to boot down your Fisher-Price computer and go to bed...

    Your material is old and boring. Let's talk about YOUR team's "quality" program.

  • cmmsbft Nov 21, 2012

    35 more wins (5 per season x 7 seasons)

    Duke hadn't beaten UNC in years...and years...and years - which means doing so is worth mentioning. You don't think anyone will not mention Fedora ending the losing streak to State in his first year as coach?
