Dennis Dottin-Carter, a standout player and most recently assistant coach at the University of Delaware's Colonial Athletic Association rival University of Maine, was named the Blue Hens' defensive line coach in February, 2013.

He was promoted to the position of co-defensive coordinator in March, 2014.

Dottin-Carter, a native of Cambridge, Mass., earned his degree in kinesiology and physical education from the University of Maine following an outstanding playing career that saw him lead the Black Bears to Atlantic 10 (now Colonial Athletic Association) titles in 2001 and 2002. He was a first team All-Atlantic 10 selection as a linebacker in 2002 when he also was named All-New England.

“We are excited to add Dennis to our staff,” said Delaware head coach Dave Brock. “Dennis is exactly what we are looking for in a defensive line coach. He brings energy and enthusiasm along with great experience in this league (Colonial Athletic Association) as both a coach and player.”

Dottin-Carter began his coaching career with head coach Jack Cosgrove at Maine in 2008 as tights ends coach and also led the fullbacks, running backs, defensive line, and special teams during his five-year tenure.

He most recently served as Maine’s defensive line and special teams coach. During his tenure, he coached five all-conference players, including All-American fullback Jared Turcotte in 2008. Maine led the CAA in scoring defense (19.5 points per game) and was fourth in sacks (22) in 2012.

“The University of Delaware has great football tradition,” said Dottin-Carter. “I was able to see that first hand as a player and later as an assistant coach at Maine. It is an honor to be able to work on this staff and to work with Coach Brock.”

“Dennis is an excellent teacher and will develop great players at Delaware,” said Robb Smith, current assistant coach at the University of Arkansas and former linebackers coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a former assistant coach at Maine. “He will demand toughness and accountability from his players while helping them to be the best that they can be on and off the field.”
