N.C. State hires Doeren
Dave Doeren is leaving Northern Illinois to take over at North Carolina State.
N.C. State announced Doeren’s hiring Saturday — less than 24 hours after he guided the 19th-ranked Huskies to their second consecutive Mid-American Conference championship, and six days after the Wolfpack fired Tom O’Brien.
Doeren claimed a MAC title both years he has been a head coach and is 23-4 since taking over the Huskies.
