RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State has fired football coach Tom O'Brien after six seasons.

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

O'Brien went 40-35 after coming to Raleigh from Boston College 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.

N.C. State says offensive coordinator Dana Bible will be the interim coach for the bowl game. All other assistants are staying to continue bowl preparations.

His teams were just 22-26 in ACC play and never finished higher than 5-3 in the league. He was 1-14 in Atlantic Division road games.
