NC State hires firm for 90k to lead their coaching search

NC State hired Parker Executive Search firm for $90k to head up their search for a new head basketball coach.

Parker seems to be trusted by NC State as they are the firm that was used in the search that landed head football coach Dave Doeren.

Thier job is to vet candidates and keep the search under wraps (as much as possible.) Here is a snippet from the ‘about us’ section of their website.

We have a national and international client base including top intercollegiate athletics programs and sports businesses, leading colleges and universities, Fortune 500 corporations, privately held startups, nationally-recognized academic health science centers, hospitals/health systems, and best-in-class not-for-profits.

Quality, professionalism, integrity, confidentiality and personalized service are at the core of who we are and what we do. We utilize our proven expertise in the search process to ensure our clients successfully identify and recruit the most qualified senior leaders.

Hiring a firm is probably a good move for NC State. With their fans being some of the best internet sleuths in the college game, Parker is going to do their best to keep things as quiet as possible. That means if NC State gets turned down by somebody, you shouldn’t know about it. is an independently run content site that exclusively covers NC State basketball and football. Started in late 2007 by two former students with the goal of integrating the latest in web content delivery into a Wolfpack sports site, free of charge to the user.

    What a waste of money. If the A.D. cannot conduct a search then we are in sad shape. Get Gregg Marshall or Miller and be done with it.

    Big mistake. I read something the other day that said that search firms always screw it up and you end up with a bad choice.
