NC State coach Dave Doeren turns down offer from Tennessee

  • Doeren faces decision after Tennessee makes offer, NC State increases value on extension

However, that deal never came to fruition; interim coach Matt Luke was promoted to full-time status after Ole Miss was victorious in the Egg Bowl over Mississippi State.

"This is what I wanted all along", Doeren said in an interview on Thursday.

"We're building a championship culture, we have first-class facilities, incredible fan support and I'm honored to continue to lead the Wolfpack".

"Dave has made significant strides in developing a complete program at N.C. State, and this new contract continues our commitment to his leadership", athletics director Debbie Yow said in a release from the school.

According to the News & Observer, Doeren, has three years remaining on his current deal that pays him $2.2 million annually (with a $2.52 million buyout) but has been working with AD Debbie Yow on a new contract since early October. He comes off of his best season with the Wolfpack, who went 8-4 (6-2 in ACC play) and are ranked No. 24 in the CFP selection committee rankings.

For years, North Carolina college football teams have been challenged to keep in-state talent within the borders of the state.

Doeren is 33-30 overall in Raleigh and 15-25 in the ACC. Doeren was the latest name to emerge as the Vols search for a new head coach.

The Volunteers have pursued Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Purdue's Jeff Brohm this week. It is unclear whether Doeren was formally offered the Tennessee job to replace fired coach Butch Jones. The Vols also reached out to Duke's David Cutcliffe about the job earlier in the week, but Cutcliffe told Tennessee officials he meant to finish his coaching career at Duke.

Nothing has been normal about Tennessee's rollercoaster search for a new head coach. Tennessee and Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano agreed to a deal Sunday, but the school backed out following public outcry and campus protests, plus government officials protesting on Twitter.
