Panthers head coach Pat Narduzzi spent three years coaching linebackers at Northern Illinois from 2000-02. That time overlapped with Canada’s first stint as an assistant with the Huskies, which spanned from 1998-2003.
NC State ranked No. 57 in the country this season in total offense with 412.8 yards per game. The Wolfpack had the No. 3 scoring offense in the ACC, averaging 33.2 points per contest.
