Former UND offensive line coach takes over Northern Illinois program headed to Orange Bowl

DEKALB, Ill. – 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 was the offensive line coach at the University of North Dakota from 2008 to 2010.
