Trestman spent 17 seasons coaching in NFL
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Longtime NFL assistant Marc Trestman was hired Friday by North Carolina State as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Trestman, who spent last season as the quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach with the Miami Dolphins, agreed to a multiyear contract that will pay him an initial salary of $175,000.
He replaces Noel Mazzone, who left to take a similar position with Mississippi.
"We are thrilled to have someone with such an extensive resume join our staff," Wolfpack coach Chuck Amato said. "He has worked with such an impressive group of players and coaches and his expertise will be a huge benefit to the Wolfpack program."
A 17-year NFL coaching veteran, Trestman has worked in various offensive capacities with the eight different teams. His stint with the Oakland Raiders included a trip to the Super Bowl in 2003.
He also spent two seasons as the quarterbacks coach at the University of Miami, where he worked with Bernie Kosar and Heisman Trophy winner Vinny Testaverde.
