On this date: NC State ends UCLA's championship reign (0:38)

Andy Katz ESPN Senior Writer 

Trend is brewing now with major coaching hires: younger or coaches with less than five years of head coaching experience. Not saying it's right or wrong but it is the trend: LSU, Washington, NC State, Illinois. Outliers are Counzo Martin to Missouri and Brian Gregory to South Florida, so far. Will be interesting to see how Cal, Oklahoma State and UMass handle. Can't see Indiana going in this direction.

I've covered Kevin Keatts since he took over at Hargrave Military Academy in 2003. Well-liked, high-energy, adaptable, versatile. Can recruit and coach.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Debbie Yow did the opposite of what she did last time. She moved swiftly, just got a guy in Kevin Keatts who can recruit/coach. Quality hire for NC State.
