The college football coaches’ silly season is in full throttle now, which has become increasingly apparent by the headlines of the last forty-eight hours. In that time, four FBS schools have had their head coaches bolt for other positions: Arkansas State, Kent State, Temple, and Wisconsin.
NC State athletic director Debbie Yow announced on Sunday that Wolfpack head coach Tom O’Brien was fired, effective immediately.
O’Brien, who came to NC State after the 2006 season following a ten year run at Boston College, posted a 40-35 record as Wolfpack head coach, including a 7-5 mark this season. Offensive coordinator Dana Bible has been tapped as the team’s interim coach.
