N.C. State football coach Dave Doeren now has made arguably his three biggest hires.
The Wolfpack announced Saturday that Matt Canada has joined Doeren's staff as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Canada comes to the Pack from Wisconsin, where he spent the 2012 season in that same position.
The Pack on Friday announced that Dave Huxtable had been hired to be defensive coordinator. Ryan Nielsen was Doeren's first hire and will coordinate recruiting. He also will serve as defensive line coach.
"Matt Canada has one of the most creative offensive minds in the country and he does a great job of utilizing strengths and hiding weaknesses," Doeren said in a statement. "I had the privilege to work with Matt when he was on the staff of our first conference championship team at Northern Illinois and to coach against him when he was the offensive coordinator at Indiana.
