NC State has dismissed Cornerbacks Coach George Barlow, who has been a part of Dave Doeren’s staff since the 2014 season.

“I appreciate George and his contributions to Wolfpack football,” Doeren added. “We wish him great success in the future.” (GoPack)

Barlow has been replaced by Brian Mitchell, who spent the past 4 seasons as Virginia Tech’s Defensive Back’s Coach. Prior to that, he was with NC State’s newly appointed Defensive Coordinator/Linebackers Coach Tony Gibson at West Virginia, where he coached the Cornerbacks for 3 seasons. Prior to that, he was the Defensive Coordinator at ECU for three seasons, and the Cornerbacks coach for 4 years before that.

Mitchell played college football for BYU, and played three years in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons.

“Brian Mitchell is an experienced DB coach with personal ties to Coach Gibson, the ACC and the region,” said Doeren. “He has done an impressive job recruiting and developing players. Many of them have gone on to the NFL.”

“It’s an honor and privilege to be joining Wolfpack Nation and the strong football foundation Coach Doeren has in place,” said Mitchell. “I’m looking forward to helping in that development alongside defensive coordinator Tony Gibson.”

“Brian is a great coach and an even better person,” said Gibson. “After working with him for three years at WVU, I know what an excellent teacher he is. I am looking forward to continuing to grow this defense with him.” (GoPack)

NC State’s Dave Doeren Buys Lunch for Rex Hospital Employees

Published

on

Earlier this week, NC State head football coach Dave Doeren bought lunch for 100 employees at Rex Hospital in Raleigh.

The food bought was from Moe’s Southwest Grill.

Rex is where NC State sends their players if they need to go to the hospital.

Alan Wolf, media relations manager for Rex Healthcare, told Jonas Pope IV of the News & Observer how much Doeren’s generosity meant.

“It’s a stressful time to be at the hospital,” Wolf told the N&O on Tuesday. “These are folks on the front line of helping patients through this pandemic. To have an outpouring of support from people like coach Doeren and those in the community who have donated all sorts of food, lunches, meals, it’s been an amazing thing to see.”

“It’s thoughtful, it’s generous and it’s heartwarming,” Wolf said. “When you’re in the hospital for however long your shift is and all of a sudden there’s a boxed lunch that a football coach donated, it means the world.” (N&O)
