— NC State head football coach Dave Doeren has filled the operational side of his staff, announcing Monday that Bill Nayes, who has 14 years of experience working for NFL teams in operations, has been named Director of Football Operations and Joe McKillip has been named Assistant Director.

Nayes comes to the Wolfpack after spending four years with the San Francisco 49ers, where he served as special assistant to the head coach. He worked under Jim Harbaugh for the past two seasons and for Coach Mike Singletary in his first two years with the organization.

“I am very excited to be reunited with Bill Nayes, his wife Paige and their children Natalia and Joe,” said Doeren. “His NFL experience with the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers brings us not only a connection to the league that can benefit our program, but also great connections in the travel world that will be helpful. Bill is a very down-to-earth, professional guy that I know our players will enjoy being around. He has an ability to fit in when it comes to dealing with players, parents, administrators and fans. People seem to gravitate towards him. He will do a tremendous job representing our football program and our university.” N.C. State Logo More NCSU Stories

Prior to his stint in San Francisco, Nayes was the assistant athletic director/director of football operations at Wisconsin for three years while Doeren was also on staff. With the Badgers, Nayes coordinated all team operations, including game scheduling, budgeting, team travel, camps, operational schedules and team bowl trips. He also served as a liaison between football and various departments, while also supervising office personnel.

From 1999-2006, Nayes served as football operations coordinator/team travel with the Seattle Seahawks under then-Head Coach Mike Holmgren. During his seven years in Seattle, he was responsible for all aspects of the team’s travel, including the budget, team charters, hotel accommodations, meal arrangements and ground transportation. Nayes also organized the
Seahawks’ training camp and mini-camps, as well as the team’s operational schedules.

Nayes was originally hired in a full-time capacity by the Green Bay Packers in 1997 after serving as a training camp intern during the summers of 1995 and 1996. He worked under Holmgren as administrative assistant/football operations until 1999.

“I’m excited to work with Coach Doeren again,” said Nayes. “I have a lot of respect for him as a person, a coach and a family man. I had never been to NC State before, but when he called and started telling me about it, I could tell in his voice how excited he was about the opportunity. Now that I’m here, I can see why. I look forward to moving my family here and doing everything I can to help the Wolfpack win football games.”

Nayes served as a student football manager at Wisconsin before moving into a football operations assistant role upon graduation. During his career, he has been a part of six college bowl games, four international games and seven NFL postseason appearances, including three Super Bowls.

Nayes graduated with a B.S. degree from Wisconsin in 1994. He and his wife, Paige, have a daughter, Natalia (8), and a son, Joe (5).

In his role as assistant director of football operations, McKillip will assist Nayes with team logistics and day-to-day operations. These activities include fall camp organization, game weekend arrangements for both home and away games, weekly team schedules, bowl game preparation, coordination of the spring football schedule and summer high school football camps. He will also assist with recruiting functions and external community relations.

“Joe was my manager at Wisconsin and he spent four years on the field and in the press box with me,” said Doeren. ‘He followed me to Northern Illinois and did a tremendous job there. He has worn about every hat there is in an operations role, from checking classes to serving as the advance guy in travel to being a mentor to our players. He takes great pride in his work and will do a great job at NC State building the bridge between campus and our players and coaches.”

McKillip comes to Raleigh after spending the past two season with Doeren at Northern Illinois University. Last season, he served as the assistant director of football operations and on-campus recruiting coordinator after serving as the operations graduate assistant the previous year.

A native of Burlington, Wisc., McKillip graduated from the University of Wisconsin, where he served as a student football manager for four seasons.
