Roof was 4-42 in four seasons as the Blue Devils’ head coach before he was fired following the 2007 season. He spent the past five seasons as Georgia Tech’s defensive coordinator.

Doeren praised Roof’s knowledge of the North Carolina Triangle as well as his recruiting ties in Atlanta and throughout Georgia.

N.C. State says Roof will start Jan. 1, pending customary university approval.
