— North Carolina State University head football coach Dave Doeren announced on Thursday that Richard McNutt, who spent the last two seasons on Doeren's staff at Northern Illinois, has been named cornerbacks coach. 

"Richard is one of the most aggressive and talented recruiters I've been with," Doeren said in a statement. "He is also a great technician at the corner position."

McNutt played corner at Ohio State University in the early 2000s and was a part of the 2002 national championship team that finished 14-0. 

"Richard has been at the highest level of collegiate football, playing on a national championship team at Ohio State and also working in the NFL, so he brings a lot of expertise to our players," Doeren said. 

In 2011, McNutt's secondary at Northern Illinois ranked 89th nationally in passing defense. This season, that group improved to 41st, allowing 217.7 yards per game. The Huskies pulled down 15 interceptions in 2012, good for 23rd nationally. 

Prior to joining the NIU staff, McNutt coached defensive backs at Kent State, where the Golden Flashes boasted the No. 1 total defense in the Mid-American Conference in 2010.

“I would like to thank Coach Doeren and Debbie Yow for the opportunity to join the Wolfpack Family,” said McNutt in a statement. “I am very excited to continue building on the foundation that has been set and I look forward to mentoring and developing our secondary here at NC State.”

    Well Zonk (if I may call you that-otherwise I will just call you by your given name...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH), That is his twitter handle and he has also referred to himself as "Coach D."

    I think there next order of business is to look for a JC QB to transfer to State, since the former coach had put all his hopes of having Summers for the next 4 years prior to him got to Carolina.

    Do you have the permission of the coach to call him Coach D ? Why do State fans have to give all their coaches acronyms ?
