Report: NC State, Doeren “Engaged in Extensive Negotiations” on Contract Extension

It’s been a long five years for NC State head football coach Dave Doeren.

But thanks to a 5-1 start, all of the blood, sweat and tears Doeren has poured into building the Wolfpack football program to it’s current top-20 status may soon lead to a big pay day.

According to a report from USA Today, NC State and Doeren are currently “engaged in extensive negotiations” on a contract extension that would keep the 45-year-old head man in Raleigh for years to come.

While the deal has yet to be formally announced, sources close to the negotiations tell USA Today that N.C. State is “expected to announce the extension in the coming days.”

Doeren’s contract was last extended in 2014 after the Pack finished 8-5 in their head coach’s second season. But mediocre play in 2015, and the first half of 2016, put the leader of the Pack on the hot seat in the eyes of many fans and observers.

Nevertheless, with NC State’s incredible start to the season – specifically wins over traditional ACC powers like Florida State and Louisville – Doeren has quickly reemerged as a favorite of Wolfpack Nation.

The Pack heads north to face-off against the Pittsburgh Panthers this Saturday at noon.
