Boise State offensive coordinator Eli Drinkwitz is headed to N.C. State to serve in the same position as well as be the Wolfpack’s quarterbacks coach, according to Fox Sports’ Bruce Feldman.

Drinkwitz’s first year as an offensive coordinator was last season, and the Broncos ranked 17th in total offense en route a 9-4 (5-3 Mountain West) finish and a 55-7 win over Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl. In 2014, he was Boise State’s tight ends coach and was also on coach Bryan Harsin’s staff at Arkansas State. Drinkwitz also served under Gus Malzahn at Auburn.
And now Drinkwitz is headed to Raleigh to work with Dave Doeren and run an offense that finished 55th in total offense and 42nd in points scored per game. N.C. State will also be undergoing a quarterback change next year, so Drinkwitz will be tasked with both improving the offense and helping mold the Wolfpack’s new leader on offense.
Needless to say, in a high-scoring and fast-paced ACC that is growing more competitive each year, Drinkwitz will have his work cut out for him.
