In-depth look at new assistant George Barlow



NC State officially announced the hire of new cornerbacks coach George Barlow Thursday afternoon. The Wolfpacker first reported the move was set to happen on Tuesday night on the premium Wolves' Den message board.

The official release from the University is available here. The Wolfpacker takes an in-depth look at Dave Doeren's staff with Barlow and the new coach himself below:

Coaching staff notes


• Barlow gives NC State eight assistant coaches who have served as at least a co-coordinator or sole coordinator (offensive, defensive, running/passing game or recruiting) during their careers, an incredible statistic given the group's relative youth.

• The Pack's nine assistants have combined for 74 years of coordinating experience at the college level, including 55 such campaigns at the FBS level (counting one season as two years if a coach served as both a recruiting coordinator and offensive/defensive/special teams coordinator, etc.).

The breakdown of those 74 years: 29 years as special teams coordinators, 21 years as defensive coordinators, 19 years as offensive/run game/passing game coordinators and five years as recruiting coordinators.

• In addition, both offensive line coach Mike Uremovich (seven years at NAIA school the University of St. Francis) and Barlow (8 games as the interim head man at New Mexico) have served as collegiate head coaches. Barlow also boasts seven years as an assistant head coach on his resume.

• The addition of the 46-year-old Barlow, who is the second-oldest member of the staff behind defensive coordinator Dave Huxtable, brings the staff's average age to 39.6 years old. Doeren is the ACC's youngest coach at 42 years old. The staff, including Doeren, has a total of 157 years of college coaching experience.
