RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) _ New North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren says taking over the Wolfpack program is ``a great opportunity.''
 
  The school held a news conference to introduce Doeren as the new coach Sunday.
 
  Doeren took the job Saturday, less than a day after leading Northern Illinois to a second straight Mid-American Conference championship. 
 
  He replaces Tom O'Brien, who was fired after six seasons last week.
 
  Doeren was 23-4 in two seasons as Northern Illinois coach, including a 17-1 in conference play. He won't coach the No. 16 Huskies (12-1) in their bowl game.
 
  He takes over a program in need of a spark. The school hasn't appeared in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game and hasn't won a league title since 1979
