New Director of Operations has 14 years of experience in NFL operations
NC State head football coach Dave Doeren has filled the operational side of his staff, announcing Joe McKillip has been named Assistant Director of Football Operations.
In his role as assistant director of football operations, McKillip will assist Nayes with team logistics and day-to-day operations. These activities include fall camp organization, game weekend arrangements for both home and away games, weekly team schedules, bowl game preparation, coordination of the spring football schedule and summer high school football camps. He will also assist with recruiting functions and external community relations.
"Joe was my manager at Wisconsin and he spent four years on the field and in the press box with me," said Doeren. `He followed me to Northern Illinois and did a tremendous job there. He has worn about every hat there is in an operations role, from checking classes to serving as the advance guy in travel to being a mentor to our players. He takes great pride in his work and will do a great job at NC State building the bridge between campus and our players and coaches."
McKillip comes to Raleigh after spending the past two season with Doeren at Northern Illinois University. Last season, he served as the assistant director of football operations and on-campus recruiting coordinator after serving as the operations graduate assistant the previous year.
A native of Burlington, Wisc., McKillip graduated from the University of Wisconsin, where he served as a student football manager for four seasons.
