O'Brien: No anger, no frustration in N.C. State firingLorenzo Perez * News & Observer Within two weeks of his dismissal as N.C. State's football coach, Tom O'Brien knew he wasn't ready to retire to a life of leisure. Sure, he had given away all the Wolfpack gear in his wardrobe within 48 hours of the Nov. 25 firing, but that was more a matter of moving on than an expression of discontent. And in O'Brien's case, moving forward meant accepting an associate head coach position at Virginia, where he previously spent 15 seasons as an assistant under George Welsh before becoming Boston College's head coach in 1997.

Ex-Florida QB Jacoby Brissett Transfers To NC State - ACC NOW BeeJay Anya (#21) vs Villanova commit Kris Jenkins (#2) Highlights "I don't have any regrets. I don't feel bad. I accomplished a lot. Many people in this profession expressed those feelings, and those are the only people that are really important to me, because they know what it's like and they know what you have to go through. There were as many people – Carolina people, Duke people, Wake people – that would come up to me and tell me how much they respected what I did, the type of program I ran at N.C. State and had a new found respect for State. So I think I accomplished a lot, and I have nothing to say one way or another, except to say it's a new chapter, and it's time to move on." - Tom O'Brien Why Didn't You Foul?
