Cumberland promotes Suber to head football coach
Jan 28, 2013 6:05 pm
Alexander leaves for position on Tech staff
Longtime Cumberland assistant football coach Donnie Suber was promoted to head coach following the resignation of Dewayne Alexander on Monday.
Alexander announced his resignation Monday to take a position on the staff at Tennessee Tech, his alma mater, where he will coach the offensive line under Watson Brown.
The Bulldogs posted a 41-33 record in seven seasons under Alexander, including 23-16 in Mid-South Conference action with 44 All-Conference honorees and 101 Conference Scholar-Athletes. Cumberland tied for the Mid-South Conference West Division championship in 2008 and played for the conference title in 2010, 2011 and 2012 as well. Thirty-nine players have been named NAIA National Scholar-Athletes, while 20 have garnered Conference Player of the Week accolades and five NAIA National Players of the Week.
“We are forever indebted to Coach Alexander for taking our program to the level where it is today – competing for conference championships but also an even greater amount of success in the classroom. He set out to build a program from the ground up and did that with a methodical approach, recruiting the kind of student-athlete we want at Cumberland in all sports – one who excels in the classroom and on the playing field.”
