— Tim Santoro, an assistant women's soccer coach at Wake Forest University since 2008, will be North Carolina State University's next head coach, Director of Athletics Debbie Yow announced Friday. 

Santoro was promoted to associate head coach at Wake Forest in July and was in charge of all aspects of recruiting during his five years in Winston-Salem. 

"First and foremost, I want to thank Debbie Yow and Sherard Clinkscales (NC State associate athletic director) for this opportunity to become the head coach at a tremendous university like N.C. State," Santoro said in a statement. "I'm excited to get this program back on the national scene where it was for so many years before."

With Santoro's help, Wake Forest won the NCAA College Cup in 2011 and earned the No. 1 overall seed in the 2011 NCAA Tournament. In 2010, the Demon Deacons won the ACC Championship and signed a top-five recruiting class. 

"As we have said a number of times, our goal for each sport at N.C. State is to become a top-25 ranked program and to graduate our student-athletes," Yow said in a statement. "Hiring Tim to lead our program is the next step for women's soccer meeting those two key goals."

Prior to arriving in Winston-Salem, Santoro was the associate head coach at College of Charleston. 

He replaces Steve Springthorpe, who stepped down from his position on Oct. 30. Springthorpe coached the Wolfpack for four season, leading the team to a 30-43-4 record.
