Dave Doeren Turns Down Vols Football Job, Returns To NC State

Dave Doeren Turns Down Vols Football Job, Returns To NC State

Doeren has spent five years with the Wolfpack, finishing 8-4 in the regular season with wins over Florida State, Louisville and UNC Chapel Hill. Both Joe Giglio of the News and Observer and Pack Pride have reported that Doeren has turned down Tennessee's offer and will remain the Wolfpack's head coach.

"This is what I wanted all along", Doeren said in an interview on Thursday. Doeren had been making $2.2 million per year and had three years remaining on his current deal. N.C. State announced the deal Thursday. Contract negotiation talks between football coach Dave Doeren and athletic director Debbie played out publicly.

And another one. The search for a new Vols football coach has misfired yet again, with NC State's Dave Doeren made a decision to turn down Tennessee and return to Raleigh.

On Wednesday, after Brohm declined the offer, Tennessee turned its attention to Doeren.

Police have said the shootings were in the same area and could be the work of a serial killer. "Today the light shines". The officer called the operations center, and police determined it was the same gun used in the four murders.

"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.

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.

N.C. State will lose 20 seniors from this year's team, which finished 6-2 in the ACC for the first time since 1994. After Mike Gundy chose to stay at Oklahoma State on Tuesday, Tennessee athletic director John Currie shifted his focus to Purdue's Jeff Brohm. NC State's bowl destination will be revealed following the conference championships this weekend. The two sides were reported to be close to a deal late last night, at which point NC State made a counter-offer to attempt to keep the head coach in Raleigh.
