NC State football to retain Dave Doeren as head coach

-

North Carolina State has decided to keep head coach Dave Doeren after becoming bowl eligible for the third consecutive year under his watch.

The university’s athletic director, Debbie Yow, confirmed his status in a statement following this week’s upset win over the in-state rival North Carolina Tary Heels.

Yow said:

With our regular season complete, I want to put to rest any speculation surrounding the future of Coach Dave Doeren and let our student-athletes, recruits and fans know he is our coach moving forward.

Doeren was facing uncertainty as the season progressed following losses to East Carolina and Boston College earlier in the season.

At 6-6 this season, Doeren is 24-26 in his career coaching the Wolfpack and 1-1 in postseason play. After starting his tenure with a 3-9 season, he improved quickly to 8-5 the following season and appeared to be a coach on the rise.

He was hired after leading a relatively obscure Northern Illinois team to a top 25 finish in 2012.

With a salary of $2.2 million per season and a contract that runs through 2019, a buyout would have likely been more than NC State would be willing to foot the bill for.
