NC State coach doesn't sweat the hot seat

Several ACC coaches are on the hot seat, and first among them is North Carolina State's Chuck Amato.

Plenty among the Wolfpack faithful wanted Amato gone last year before NC State turned around its season by winning five of its final six games, including a Meineke Car Care Bowl victory over South Florida.

The heat is being turned up further this season, thanks to the Wolfpack's 1-2 start entering Saturday's ACC opener against No. 20 Boston College (ESPN2, 8 p.m. ET).
