Tenuta has spent 16 years as a defensive coordinator at seven schools. He won't coordinate N.C. State's defense. Mike Archer still handles those duties, but he said Tenuta will help bring a new dimension to N.C. State in terms of pressuring the quarterback.
O'Brien said the addition of Tenuta won't change much in the structure of the defense, but could change its tenor and coaching points. He said Tenuta might make N.C. State a better blitz team.
