A legendary coach passed away.

Former Delaware head coach Harold "Tubby" Raymond passed away Friday at the age of 92 after battling an illness.

Raymond won 300 games and three national championships with the Blue Hens and is hailed as one of the innovators of the Wing-T offense.

Delaware athletic director Chrissi Rawak released the following statement.

"We pass along our deepest sympathies to the Raymond family and everyone who loves Delaware football. Coach Raymond was a true icon and his legacy lives on among all Blue Hens. We certainly remember all the great accomplishments that Coach Raymond provided Delaware fans over the years, but, more importantly, we celebrate the impact he had on the lives of so many student-athletes."

Raymond racked up a 300-119-3 record in 36 seasons from 1966 to 2001 with the Blue Hens. The longtime head coach led his team to nine conference championships and 16 NCAA playoff appearances.

Our thoughts are with the Raymond family and Delaware community at this time.
