RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — NC State head coach Dave Doeren has announced that defensive coordinator Dave Huxtable has been relieved of his duties. Huxtable has served as defensive coordinator and coached the Wolfpack linebackers since 2013.

"We appreciate all of Dave’s contributions to our program and wish him the best,” said Doeren. “However moving forward defensively, I’ve decided we would like to go in a different direction.”

Statement from Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan:

“The conclusion of a season is a time to reflect, look in the mirror and evaluate the overall direction of a program. Dave Doeren is our football coach. He has earned it by winning nine games in back-to-back seasons and I look forward to doing all I can to help Coach Doeren moving forward. The 2019 season didn’t unfold the way any of us wanted but we will continue to invest in this program, and to provide the resources to help NC State football compete at the highest level.”
