Jackson Joins Wolfpack Football Staff

Posted December 16, 2012

— NC State head football coach Dave Doeren has announced that former NFL wide receiver Frisman Jackson has joined his staff and will coach that position for the Wolfpack. Jackson spent last season on Doeren’s staff at Northern Illinois.

“Fris Jackson played in the NFL and had a great career,” said Doeren. “He comes from the inner city of Chicago and understands how to relate to guys from that environment and help them mature through the process. He’s been very good helping our young men who had issues off the field to grow up and mature. I think he can also help our guys understand the reality of how hard it is and what it takes to be an NFL football player.”

In 2012, Jackson coached wide receiver Martel Moore, who earned first-team All-MAC honors. Jackson ranked 23rd nationally with his 1,054 receiving yards and seventh in the nation with 12 touchdown receptions. Receivers Tommylee Lewis and Perez Ashford also had their best seasons as Husky players in 2012. Northern Illinois will play Florida State in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 1.

The Chicago native caught 40 passes for 490 yards while playing wide receiver and on special teams for the Cleveland Browns from 2002-2006. He coached wideouts at Akron from 2010-11 and at his alma mater, Western Illinois, from 2008-09. During his time at Western, Leatherneck receiver Lito Senatus finished in the top 30 in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) in receptions and in the top 40 in receiving yards.

Jackson began his collegiate career as a quarterback at Northern Illinois from 1997-99 before transferring to WIU, where he played quarterback and wide receiver in 2000 and 2001.

At WIU, he set the school records for catches (14) and receiving yards (286) in a game versus Indiana State on Nov. 17, 2001. He ranks fourth on the WIU single-season list for yards with 1,041 and is 10th in single season catches with 55.

“My family and I are both excited and thankful to Coach Doeren for the opportunity to join the Wolfpack family,” said Jackson. “NC State is a very special place and I will work tirelessly to help continue building on its rich football tradition.”

Jackson earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees from Western Illinois. He and his wife Lindsey have an young daughter.

“I am excited to welcome Fris and his wife Lindsay and daughter Anya to the Wolfpack family,” Doeren added.
