NC State has chosen BC’s Tom O’Brien, a Naval Academy graduate, over Paul Johnson, Navy’s current coach.
Boston College coach Tom O’Brien has been hired as North Carolina State’s new football coach, multiple sources close to the situation said Wednesday night.
The Wolfpack chose O’Brien over Navy coach Paul Johnson, who was contacted about the job earlier this week. O’Brien, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, led the Eagles to a 9-3 record this season. He had a 75-45 record in 10 seasons with the Eagles. Boston College plays Navy in the Dec. 30 Meineke Car Care Bowl.
Interesting. Johnson’s name has been tossed about in the Alabama search, although he has apparently not been interviewed and West Virginia’s Rich Rodriguez is reportedly all but locked up that job. It would be quite odd if he were in the running for jobs of that caliber but wound up not getting any offers.
