— Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe announced on Tuesday the promotion of former Blue Devil team captain Re’quan Boyette to assistant coach. Boyette, who will coach Duke’s running backs, served last season as a graduate assistant coach.

“We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to promote Re’quan on to our full time staff as an assistant coach,” said Cutcliffe. “He has earned this opportunity in every regard. Re’quan has an outstanding knowledge of what we’re doing offensively. Obviously, he has performed within our system as a player, and now he’s taught it as a coach, and that puts him in touch with the young men he’s coaching. His past experience of coming out of the state of North Carolina, choosing Duke and seeing all of the opportunities that Duke has given him, really puts him in a great position to recruit to this great university.”

As a graduate assistant coach in 2012, Boyette helped the Blue Devil offense score a school single-season record 410 points as Duke reached a bowl game for the first time since 1994. He worked primarily with the running backs as the trio of Juwan Thompson, Josh Snead and Jela Duncan combined to rush for 1,401 yards on 283 attempts and averaged 4.95 yards per carry.

“I’m so thankful to Coach Cutcliffe for this opportunity,” Boyette said. “Duke University means the world to me, and it is a privilege to coach at my alma mater. Coach Cutcliffe and the staff have done so much over the past five years, and I’m excited to help push the program to even greater success.”

A native of Wilson, N.C., Boyette lettered five seasons (2005-06-07-08-09) as a running back at Duke and served as team captain in both 2008 and 2009. Rushing 314 times for 1,202 yards and five touchdowns in his career, he became the 37th player in school history to reach the 1,000-yard mark on the ground. Boyette, who missed the entire 2008 campaign due to injury, twice led the Blue Devils in rushing in 2006 and 2007. In addition, he caught 47 career passes for 294 yards and two touchdowns.

On October 22, 2005, Boyette matched the 10th-longest rushing attempt in Duke history with a 78-yard effort against Florida State en route to a career-best 123-yard performance. In 2008, Boyette was named to the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team and represented Duke at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, La., on January 2, 2009.

Boyette graduated from Duke in 2009 with a degree in sociology.

Cutcliffe also announced that both John Latina and Kurt Roper have received Assistant Head Coach titles while Latina also has been named the program’s Run Game Coordinator. With the addition of Boyette, Zac Roper shifts from coaching the running backs to tight ends while assuming the roles of both Special Teams Coordinator and Recruiting Coordinator while Derek Jones becomes Duke’s Assistant Special Teams Coordinator in addition to coaching the Blue Devil defensive backs.
