DEKALB, Ill. (AP) - Northern Illinois has promoted offensive coordinator Rod Carey to head coach, replacing the departed Dave Doeren.
The school announced the move Sunday - the same day it accepted an invitation to the Orange Bowl. Doeren was hired Saturday by North Carolina State to replace the fired Tom O'Brien after leading NIU (12-1) to Mid-American Conference championships in each of his two seasons.
The Huskies were 23-4 with a 17-1 record in conference play under him. Now, they're turning to Carey, who will make his debut against ACC champion Florida State.
He has spent two years on the staff and moved up from line coach to coordinator after the first game this year when Mike Dunbar left the team for health reasons.
