Coach Doeren was officially introduced as NC State football coach on Sunday. I thought he killed the press conference (watch for yourself above). Doeren seems like a no-nonsense type of guy that’s full of energy and ready to do whatever it takes to win. I love it! It’ll be interesting to see how he assembles his staff, but I believe he’ll be able to get some quality coaches and recruiters to join him. I know we still have the Music City Bowl to play this year, but I’m already looking forward to next year.
Looking around college football this week and seeing how some of the coaching searches have not gone smoothly at all (namely Tennessee) we have to give major props to Debbie Yow for how she conducted this search. She identified her man and wasted no time closing the deal before any other schools could get in on the action.
That’s a damn good thing too since the Wisconsin job is now open and Doeren would have definitely been high on their list. I love you Debbie! Thanks for not listening to the media that continues to tell us how we should accept our place as a mediocre athletics program. Refuse to accept the status quo!
