Dave Doeren turns down Tennessee offer, will remain at NC State

Dave Doeren coaches

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press the move came after Doeren spoke to Tennessee officials about their coaching vacancy.

The N.C. State board of trustees is expected to approve a five-year contract, worth about $3 million per year, on Friday. He then took the job at N.C. State in 2013.

Tennessee athletic director John Currie met with Doeren on Wednesday afternoon in Raleigh to discuss the Volunteers' opening. In response to the interest from Tennessee, NC State has offered him a new contract with increases in both compensation and term, as well as an enhanced salary pool for his staff.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reported that Doeren's new contract at N.C. State will be finalized "very soon", and potentially before Thursday is over.

"We want to support the continued growth of the program under Dave, the culture he has established, the competitive and academic gains he's helped us achieve and his continued progress in recruiting".

The Tennessee search may still impact North Carolina schools, as Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson, considered a dark horse candidate early in the process, may become a target for the Vols.

To recount: In a 48-hour period, Tennessee's search bounced from Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy to Purdue's Brohm and on to Doeren - all after an apparent agreement with Ohio State assistant Greg Schiano fell through because of fans' complaints.

However, Doeren soothed Wolfpack Nation's fears by planting his feet firmly in Raleigh.

Sports Illustrated first reported Doeren's decision to stay with NC State, where he is 33-30 in five seasons. North Carolina State also lost to Mississippi State in the Belk Bowl in 2015.
