New coach in the works for NC State?

Postby GoldandBlack on Tue Nov 21, 2006 9:44 pm

I had a conversation with a friend who's an NC State alum yesterday. He says their latest rumor mill has Chuck Amato replaced as football coach by Bill Cowher as early as next year.

Cowher's an NC State alum, his wife played basketball while there, Cowher has already bought a house in North Raleigh ($2.5 mil), and supposedly unoffical discussions are being held regarding salary, although Cowher has reportedly said that he can live on less than he currently makes at Pittsburgh.

All rumor, of course, but it sure is entertaining.

Amato needs to go. He seems to be able to recruit but that's about it.

Looks like Paul Johnson of Georgia Southern fame is getting a strong look by the folks in Raleigh. It'd be interesting to see what he could do there.
