PROCTORVILLE — Fairland Dragons’ head football coach Cullen Homolka is stepping back into the college ranks.

After spending the past season helping the Dragons to a 7-4 record, an Ohio Valley Conference title, and a berth in the Division V playoffs, Homolka is hooking up with coach Dave Doeren again.

“It was an unexpected opportunity,” said Homolka.

“(Doeren) called an asked it I was interested. It is a position that I could not pass up.”

Homolka was a graduate assistant two years ago at Northern Illinois and will join Doeren as the new head coach at North Carolina State. He will serve as the director of player personnel for the Wolfpack.

Homolka replaces Drew Hughes who took a job at Florida earlier this month.
