Multiple sources indicate NC State is likely to dump head coach Tom O’Brien
Early NC State names include Southern Miss head coach Larry Fedora and Alabama AHC Sal Sunseri.
Expect former New Mexico coach Mike Locksley to the on staff at NC State, whoever is named the new head coach.
I don’t know where in the hell the Locksley stuff comes from. I need to go back to re-fresh myself some…but, I seem to remember reading some really ‘interesting’ stuff about him about a year ago that left me with an odd taste in my mouth. The takeaway from the reading is that the guy was a real ass-hole. Of course, I could be 100% incorrect and need to re-affirm my memory. On a related note, Backing the Pack said the following (link):
Maybe Sunseri should be added to the POAPS list, even if this is a dubious source. Locksley is the former head coach at New Mexico, who was fired early in the year for general ineptitude and also because a UNM recruit was pulled over and charged with a DWI in a car registered to Locksley. Locksley was an assistant at Maryland from 1998-2002 before moving on to Florida, Illinois, and then New Mexico. So there is a Debbie Yow connection, though I find it hard to believe we would touch Locksley right now.
