Tom O'Brien is an ex-NC State Wolfpack coach.





North Carolina State has decided that head football coach Tom O'Brien's services are no longer needed. The school announced Sunday afternoon that  O'Brien had been fired after six seasons.


Even though O'Brien coached the Wolfpack to a 7-5 record this season, the team was hampered with inconsistent play. That was very evident with the team's performance in ACC play.

"For every big win over Florida State this season, or a top 10 Clemson team in 2011, O'Brien's N.C. State teams had a propensity to drop an ACC game it should have won, like the Virginia game this year and the Boston College game last year." 

NC State athletic director Debbie Yow is apparently looking at Vanderbilt HC James Franklin to replace O'Brien.
