Boston Globe: BC’s Offensive Staff to Raleigh?

This article discusses potential developments with Tom O’Brien’s staff in Raleigh.

With associate head coach/recruiting coordinator Jerry Petercuskie, offensive coordinator Dana Bible, offensive line coach Don Horton, running backs coach Jason Swepson, and tight ends coach Jim Bridge all set to join former coach Tom O’Brien at North Carolina State, according to team sources, it was thought Jagodzinski might try to preserve some continuity on the staff by keeping some defensive assistants.

For those who are not familiar with Offensive Coordinator, Dana Bible then you can click here for his biography.

Bible actually coached for Monte Kiffin at NC State from 1983-1985 as the “passing game coordinator/quarterbacks/receivers coach”. This means that he coached NC State all-time greats Erik Kramer, Haywood Jefferies, Naz Worthen and Danny Peebles.

    I’m a bit disappointed if TOB doesn’t bring his defensive staff with him for that means we have to start over finding a D staff. It would allow him to keep some of Chuck’s guys if he wants to but I don’t know if that will happen.

    NO we already have a great RB coach in Portee. They can’t get rid of Portee, he’s been there forever.

    Dude I will seriously be bummed if they let Portee go after 16 years.

    Talk about Wolfpack pride the man has been there longer than any head coach……you know he is just as much a symbol as a coach.

    (not taking away from his coaching abilities)

    Maybe totally off topic but Merry Christmas to STATEFANSNATION. Thanks for bringing some Wolfpack info and insight to the great state of Texas.

    And just for the record, Foulup still needs to be fired!

    Old13! At least two of us are still thinking in that direction!~

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! May the coming year bring us a bowl game and the potential of having our BB team headed to the NCAA’s with a shot to go past the first round!

    Spaz vs. Dunlap might not be an option, and so be it. Our D has not been our problem. Lets face it, they played well enough for the most part and TOB might be looking to have an olive branch or two with this team. Offensively, I’m behind him 100% percent to do whatever it takes to right that devasted unit. Portee being a true Stand up WolfPack guy should not carry much weight considering how loyal Chuck was to NCSU. And to be honest, I haven’t been to terribly impressed with any runningbacks at State in the passing game lately. The blocking assignments have been not carried out well.

    Not to mention the dropsies…. but I think there is room on TOB’s staff for Portee and I think some continuity wouldn’t be bad for the boys.

    I certainly hope Cignetti gets canned. He’s not shown any ability to do any of the jobs he had.
    I saw an article where TOB complemented him, which I hope is the kiss of death!
    Maybe he and his brother could offer themselves as a package deal!

    coach portee is in a class by himself—should coach o’brien desire to link his staff with the tradtion of the past—coach portee would be the prefect choice—great recruiter as well—highly respected in the hs coaching ranks in both sc and nc—give him a shot coach
