2005 Football Recruiting Regions

2005 will bring change to the regions that NC State recruits in football. Pack Pride takes a look at where each coach will be working in 2005.

The NC State coaching staff underwent some significant changes during the off-season. The additions of Mark Trestman, Dwayne Dixon and Steve Dunlap will also result in shifting of some recruiting responsibilities. Perhaps the biggest change will be DL coach Todd Stroud's move from central Florida to south Florida- a region that has been particularly kind to the Pack over the last several years. State will also add West Virginia to it's core recruiting region- headed up by Dunlap. Pack Pride breaks down each coach's area of responsibility for the coming year.
