RALEIGH, N.C. — Tom O'Brien is out at North Carolina State after six seasons as the Wolfpack football coach.

Athletic director Debbie Yow made the announcement Sunday, one day after N.C. State finished a 7-5 regular season with a win over Boston College.

O'Brien went 40-35 after leaving Boston College for Raleigh following the 2006 season. He took the Wolfpack to three bowl games, but won't coach in a fourth when N.C. State receives its bid next week.

The university said offensive coordinator Dana Bible will be the interim coach for the bowl game. All other assistants will stay to continue bowl preparations.

O'Brien's teams were just 22-26 in Atlantic Coast Conference play and never finished higher than 5-3 in the league. He was 1-14 in Atlantic Division road games.
