RALEIGH, NC -- New North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren says taking over the Wolfpack program is "a great opportunity."

The school held a news conference to introduce Doeren as the new coach Sunday.

Doeren took the job Saturday, less than a day after leading Northern Illinois to a second straight Mid-American Conference championship.

He replaces Tom O'Brien, who was fired after six seasons last week.

Doeren was 23-4 in two seasons as Northern Illinois coach, including a 17-1 in conference play. He won't coach the No. 16 Huskies (12-1) in their bowl game.

He takes over a program in need of a spark. The school hasn't appeared in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game and hasn't won a league title since 1979.
