4. Remarks Dave Doeren, Head Football Coach
Coach Doeren commented on his role as football coach, noting that there are more moving parts in the game of football than any other sport.  There are 115 active players on the roster in the fall and only 11 of them get to play at any single time.  Their (the coaches) mission is to squeeze every ounce of potential out of themselves, the players, and their staff to make sure that they are doing everything possible to win.

Coach Doeren reported that after he arrived on campus the team’s GPA increased from 2.18 to 2.78 and last fall it was down to 2.4 and will increase this spring.  His goal is for the team’s GPA collectively to always be a 2.5 for the year and more importantly is the retention of the players, keeping them where they are continuing toward their degrees.   He also stated that the ACC academic team came out yesterday and included six members from NC State.
