Paul H. Derr received his B.S. in Physical Education from the University of Illinois in 1928 and his M.A. from New York University in 1934. Derr taught and coached for various universities before coming to NC State in 1951. In that year, the University named Derr Professor and Head of the Department of Physical Education. Derr took on other responsibilities such as coaching track and acting as a fundraiser before retiring from NCSU in 1970. A new track facility on the main campus was named in his honor in 2006.

During 2008 renovation work included a state-of-the-art rubberized running surface

During the summer of 2011, Dail Soccer Field received even more updates. Seat-back chairs and bleachers significantly upgraded the seating comfort for NC State fans, which includes bleachers behind both goals. A new brick look also encompasses a majority of the upgrades that have been made to the stadium, while a press box, new fan entrance and a brand-new stand alone building in the southeast corner of the stadium provides both the Pack and its competitors meeting and locker room space and showers.
