With the departure of Eliah Drinkwitz to Appalachian State, NC State had to make multiple adjustments to its coaching staff. Drinkwitz was the program’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

A few days later, and the Pack have filled the second half of that void. NC State has hired Kurt Roper as its quarterbacks coach.
NC State has officially hired Kurt Roper as its new QB coach.

Roper, of course, has experience in the ACC; for six seasons, he worked as David Cutcliffe’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Duke. After Duke’s dream season in 2013, Roper left for the same two jobs at Florida.
