You'll work well here, Springthorpe.

Steve Springthorpe, who comes to Raleigh from Fresno State, is the new women's soccer coach, and clearly, this is a man who knows the score:

"I’m extremely excited and thankful to Coach Fowler to believe in me and I’m grateful for this opportunity to come to an institution the caliber of NC State University," said Springthorpe. "Everyone I met on my visit showed how truly great the athletic department is and I look forward to the challenge of competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference."

He already knows the proper buttons to push. The use of "Coach Fowler" resulted in an immediate five-year addition to the length of his contract.
