He spent his last two seasons with the Wolf Pack as offensive line coach and run game coordinator. Before that, he was the program's tight ends and co-offensive line coach.

That included Norcross’s involvement in ex-Nevada coach Chris Ault’s creation of the pistol offense prior to the 2005 season. Norcross got his start in coaching as a graduate assistant for the Wolf Pack from 2001-02.
