NC State announced Sunday the addition of assistant coach Todd Goebbel, who had been on the Marshall Thundering Herd staff since 2015. Goebbel, who is a former college quarterback, has served in a variety of different roles as a coach, and will coordinate special teams as well as coach the tight ends for the Wolfpack.

Dave Doeren on Goebbel, from NCSU’s release:

“What drew me to Todd was how impressed I’ve been with Marshall’s special teams when we’ve played them each of the past two years,” said Doeren. “I’m excited to add a guy to our staff who has great knowledge in the kicking game - running all of the units and coaching the specialists- and who also knows how to coach multiple positions on offense. He has developed players at tight end, quarterback and wide receiver during his career.

“He is known as a terrific recruiter and I was blown away by his organization, teaching method, passion for the game, and relationship-building skills.”

While with the Herd, Goebbel spent time coaching the receivers, tight ends, quarterbacks, and special teams. He was also a co-offensive coordinator. If he can help the Pack get better on special teams, this’ll end up being a good hire, regardless of what he does on the recruiting trail. (Though the recruiting part is kind of important, too.)

Here’s a bit more background on Goebbel from the Charleston Gazette-Mail, from back when he took over Marshall’s quarterbacks.
