A rumor has been floating around the message boards for a week or two now and it looks like it finally made it to Twitter that Defensive Backs coach Richard McNutt is no longer with the football staff. The very reliable Pete Roussel tweets:
A source tells @coachingsearch that NC State defensive backs coach Richard McNutt is out.

If true, and we at SFN believe that it is, we should expect something from State’s SID tomorrow.
McNutt is a very lively personality and is well known for his social media prowess and being an aggressive recruiter so when he was silent during the most recent #RedLight excitement of DB Mike Stevens’ commitment we knew something was up.
We’re sad to see McNutt go but I’m sure Coach D will find a suitable replacement. I just hope he is able to entertain us on social media like McNutt used to. Here’s a collection of his finest moments

Good luck coach, thanks for your time here.
