NC State adds a running backs coach

Desmond “Des” Kitchings

Helping Air Force finish third in 2011 in rushing, Falcons running backs coach Desmond “Des” Kitchings will now do his best to improve North Carolina State’s ground game.

NC State announced today that Kitchings has been hired to join Tom O’Brien‘s staff as the WolfPack’s new RB coach.

“We are very fortunate to have Des Kitchings join our program,” O’Brien said in a statement. “He will be a great addition to our staff both on and off the field. Not only does he have great experience as a coach, but he will also be an asset for us in recruiting because of his familiarity with and his ability to recruit the states of South Carolina and Georgia.”

Before his one season with Air force, Kitchings spent three years with Vanderbilt as the offensive coordinator (2010) and RB coach (2008-10).

    Now, if they can keep their top running back prospects from leaving the state to play ball, he might have something to coach then.
