Familiar territory for NC Central interim HC Foster

Dwayne Foster doesn’t have time to make any sweeping changes to his football team. Installed as North Carolina Central’s interim head coach less than two weeks before their season opener, Foster doesn’t want to make any major changes, not to a team he helped build for three years as an assistant head coach.

“Our tempo in terms of offensively is going to remain the same in terms of being an up-tempo, no huddle, spread offense," said Foster. "Defensively we’re going to still look to take the ball away and score the ball when we have the opportunity. There is no need to make any changes because of what we have in place.”

Foster is familiar with his players and his players with him. He was also recruiting coordinator for Central, so the adjustment has been an easy one for a team getting ever closer to their season opener against Duke.

“I’m a passionate hard-working football coach that tells it like it is to our players,” said Foster.

'“He’s kind of like a straight forward no nonsense guy,” said NCCU quarterback Jordan Reid. “He has us prepared for Duke University.”

“I’m transparent, I like to be as transparent as possible when I’m with them so we can get that back from them so they feel comfortable around us to be able to relax and tell us things and just be comfortable playing this football game.”

And the wait won’t be long for that first game, crosstown rival Duke awaits Saturday.

    Coach Foster did seem to be an upbeat and energetic guy.

    He is young, hope this chance at coaching is a good stepping stone for him. Don't want him to win his opener though.

    GO DUKE!!
