North Carolina State has agreed to a a five-year contract extension with head coach Dave Doeren.
Doeren had been under consideration for the Tennessee job but opted to stay with the Wolfpack.
Doeren’s new deal is worth $15 million, and worth $1 million less than Tennessee’s offer, according to Joe Giglio of the News and Observer.
North Carolina State is currently in second place behind Clemson in the ACC’s Atlantic Division with an 8-4 record.
The Volunteers coaching search has been going bad and now that Doeren is off the table it seems that their tough road will continue to be rocky as the search for Butch Davis’ replacement.
