PISCATAWAY, N.J., Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Rutgers offensive coordinator Bill Cubit has resigned to pursue other career opportunities.
The announcement was made by Coach Greg Schiano.
Cubit also served as the team's quarterbacks coach, in addition to his duties as offensive coordinator, for the 2001and 2002 seasons.
School officials were very low-key about Cubit's resignation.
"On behalf of Greg Schiano and myself, we wish Bill well in his future endeavors," said Rutgers Athletic Director Bob Mulcahy.
In an awful season, the Scarlet Knight finished last among all Division I-A schools in total offense and set a school record for least rushing yards.
According to the Trentonian, Schiano said Cubit's decision came after a long evaluation process, and that he now is looking at a list of potential replacements.
"I went through an evaluation process and made some decisions," Schiano said during a conference call with reporters on Tuesday. "Bill and I spoke at length about the season and we both decided this was the right thing for everyone involved."
Cubit's son, Ryan, the team's starting quarterback last fall, recently transferred to Western Michigan.
