According to a report from PackPride.com, North Carolina State is expected to hire running backs coach and running game coordinator Desmond Kitchings away from the Air Force Academy. NC State has been looking for a new running backs coach since Everette Sands left the program for the same position at the University of South Carolina.
If the report is accurate, Kitchings will have spent only one season coaching at Air Force. He joined the Falcons after three years at Vanderbilt.
With Air Force, Kitchings helped what was -- as usual -- one of the country's top rushing attacks. The Falcons finished the 2011 season third nationally in rushing yards per game and fourth nationally in yards per carry.
