Raymond, 75, is ending a 36-year career with the Blue Hens after 300 wins. He became just the ninth coach in the history of college football to win 300 games when his team defeated Richmond 10-6 on Nov. 10 at Delaware Stadium.
Raymond is the fourth college football coach to record 300 wins at just one school. He leaves with a 300-119-3 record and three national titles -- in 1971, 1972 and 1979.
