KALAMAZOO – Head football coach Bill Cubit and his wife, Nancy, have created the Cubit Family Athletic Endowment Fund for Academic Services, and endowment gift of $50,000.

Through the endowment agreement, Bill and Nancy Cubit will establish a permanent fund to make available discretionary funds for Academic Services within the WMU Division of Intercollegiate Athletics.

“These young men and women come to Western Michigan University to receive a first rate education and the effort put forth by the academic services staff on behalf of all our student-athletes is second to none.  I am very proud to be a part of this great institution and feel very lucky that Nancy and I are able to give back. It is the right thing to do,” commented Cubit.
“It says a lot about Bill and Nancy and their commitment, not only to the football program but to each and every one of our student-athletes, and the education they receive. We are a family at Western Michigan University and this gift shows just that,” remarked athletic director Kathy Beauregard.

Western Michigan football opens the 2009 season at Michigan on Sept. 5 at 3:30 p.m., airing on ABC in the Midwest footprint and on ESPN2 in every other market across the country.

The Broncos open their home schedule with Mid-American Conference East rival Miami at 7 p.m. on Sept. 19.
