Dave Doeren faced several challenges in his first season as the head coach of NC State, but according to the second-year coach, the fan base wasn't one of them. During a recent visit with The David Glenn Show, Doeren didn't hesitate to point out that his program has the best fans in the area.

"The Wolfpack Nation is the strongest fan base in the state of North Carolina for football," Doeren said. "There's no doubt about it."

The former Northern Illinois coach added that the passion of Wolfpack fans also helps on the recruiting trail, claiming that "they want to come out of the tunnel and feel like it's a special day." The Wolfpack's incoming freshman class is rated No. 34 nationally by 247Sports.com's composite.

During the interview, Doeren also discussed what he likes about starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett and talked about what goals he has set for this year's team. Click below to hear the full interview:
