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

North Carolina State had been looking to lock up Doeren, whose previous contract runs through 2019. N.C. State announced the deal Thursday.

Doeren said he's getting a new contract with NC State and is thrilled the school has faith in him.

N.C. State countered with an offer on Wednesday night, and Doeren woke up on Thursday, weighing the chance to make more money at Tennessee against the chance to build on his recent success with the Wolfpack. NC State is No. 24 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.

"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", Yow said. The Wolfpack won six in a row to get to 6-1 and were ranked as high as No. 14 before finishing the regular season 2-3. On Sunday, NC State will learn its destination for a fourth consecutive bowl game.

Doeren is 56-34 in seven seasons as an FBS head coach.

Doeren, 33-30 in five seasons as the Wolfpack coach, has a potential offer in place from Tennessee, the Raleigh News & Observer reported, citing an unidentified source with knowledge of the situation. A source told SI Tuesday that UT had reached out to Brohm and Doeren in hopes of filling its coaching vacancy. The Vols have made offers to numerous candidates since they backed out of their deal with Greg Schiano over the weekend, and ESPN's Mark Schlabach reports that Sumlin is the next coach they will speak with.

Just hours after long-time Knoxville reporter Jimmy Hyams reported that a deal was imminent with Purdue head football coach Jeff Brohm to become the Vols' next coach, Tennessee is reportedly moving on in their search.
