Happy day for me! The results on the field were mediocre at best as he finished 40-35 overall and 22-26 in the ACC. For all the things I dislike about TOB, I do appreciate the way he handled the UNC rivalry and will always remember the 5 straight wins. Thanks Coach!
Having said all that, I’m glad his coaching career was ended by getting fired and not him retiring and riding off into the sunset. Every person that I know that has worked or still work for him in the NC State football program (and I know a bunch) cannot stand the guy and have wanted him gone for a long time. When you’re Nick Saban and you’re winning national championships you can be a dick all you want, but if you’re gonna finish 4-4 in a weak ass ACC every year then you should at least treat your people the right way.
I’ll be toasting a glass of champagne tonight in celebration with them that TOB got his due.
