POAPS: Darrell Hazell

Is the guy who turned one of the worst programs in the history of college football into a player on the national scene ready to leave the cradle of coaches for the big time?


POAPS: Dave Doeren

D squared has the reputation of a defensive-minded coach, but nobody told the offense at Northern Illinois.


'Unexpected Twist' Reportedly Hits NCSU Search

Finally some intrigue up in this piece! Football Scoop just dropped a vague "unexpected twist" on Twitter regarding the NC State coaching search.

I think what his obviously means is that Nick Saban reconsidered his position after thinking it over and discussing it with family members. At Alabama, you're just another legend; at NC State, you could be the greatest of all time and we will build multiple statues of you and also give you as many wolfdogs as you require.


POAPS: Sonny Dykes

Could the young son of the winningest coach in Texas Tech history revitalize the Pack program with his gunslingin' "Air Raid" offense?


Dykes to be the next head coach of the Pack?

La Tech head coach will interview with State the morning before the emergency Board meeting.


Kentucky Hires Mark Stoops

One vacancy has been filled. Stoops spent the last three years as Florida State's defensive coordinator.

"I am thrilled to be named the head football coach at the University of Kentucky," Stoops said in a release. "My family and I are excited and looking forward to becoming a part of the Big Blue Nation."

So that's one BCS conference program to go the coordinator route. Is Kentucky's job better than ours because it's in the SEC? I honestly have no idea on that one, but this may be an indication of the caliber of coach we can expect to hire.


Kentucky Hearing A Lot Of 'No Thanks'

Kentucky is feeling that coaching search pain, according to a report from Kyle Tucker. Whole lotta no thankses here.


Tylar Reagan, NC State Hero

Tylar Reagan isn't even enrolled at NC State yet, but he is already a Wolfpack legend.


BOT 'Emergency Meeting' On Wednesday

What's all this then?


Is Kyrin Priester The 1st Recruiting Defection?

Kyrin Priester, a wide receiver from Georgia and a member of NC State's 2013 football recruiting class, could be looking elsewhere in the near future:

"I was kind of mad at first [that Tom O'Brien was fired], but now I am just trying to see who the new coach is and see how everything is," Priester said. "I am pretty much going to open it back up, depending on what happens with Coach [Troy] Walters. If he is fired, I am not going there."

There's no telling if Walters will be retained--in many cases, new head coaches like to start from scratch. And Debbie Yow has made it clear that she is not going to meddle in these decisions, so I suppose the fate of Priester when it comes to NC State is up to the next head coach.

Defections are going to happen, and there is no use in worrying about them because they are completely beside the point. It would be nice to keep the current class together, but the important thing is getting the right head coach. Whatever happens from there, we'll deal with it.


James Franklin not a candidate for the State job.

Athletic Director Debbie Yow declared today in her 5pm press conference that Vanderbilt coach and long time personal friend James Franklin is not a candidate for the NC State job.


TOB's Buyout Is $1.2 Million

NC State will pay Tom O'Brien $300,000 annually for the next four years, according to Jeff Gravley.
