NC State hires former Wisconsin DB Aaron Henry to coach safeties

RALEIGH, N.C. -- NC State has hired former Wisconsin defensive back Aaron Henry to coach its safeties.

Coach Dave Doeren announced Henry's hiring on Friday.

Henry spent last season as the cornerbacks coach at Rutgers, and before that he was a graduate assistant at Arkansas from 2014-15.

Doeren recruited Henry to Wisconsin a decade ago, when he was an assistant with the Badgers. Henry played there from 2007-11, with 181 tackles and seven interceptions in 52 games, while helping Wisconsin reach three consecutive Rose Bowls.

Doeren says he has "proudly watched [Henry's] career as a coach" and that he "will bring great enthusiasm and expertise to our defense."
