O'Brien Out at NC State

Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE

The News and Observer is reporting that the school announced Sunday that head coach Tom O'Brien will not return for a seventh season.

According to this article from the Raleigh News and Observer, Tom O'Brien will not return as the Wolfpack's head football coach next season. According to the article, O'Brien's contract runs through 2015 and he will be paid 1.2 million over the next three years. The bowl game will be played with an interim head coach, meaning the fire is effective immediately.

I must say I'm shocked. I didn't expect this so soon, and its hard to fire a head coach who has been to three straight bowl games and has a clean record. I seriously hope Yow has some strong candidates lined up to fill the job, or we could be looking at a bad situation. Let the Herb Sendek media comparisons begin!
