Dave Doeren guided Northern Illinois to back-to-back Mid-American Conference championships, and now he is headed to North Carolina State, the school announced Saturday afternoon.
Doeren informed the NIU players of his decision to accept the N.C. State position Saturday night. Then NIU athletic director Jeff Compher addressed the players.
I like this hire.
Doeren is a defensive-minded coach who also features an exciting offense. He'll do well with ACC caliber talent and, believe it or not, there is a lot of talent in the NC/SC area.
