Dave Doeren is set to receive an extension at NC State, according to R. Cory Smith of Pack Pride.
Smith reports the particulars of the extension have been agreed upon by both sides but still must receive final approval from NC State's board of trustees, which could happen this coming week.
The deal would add two years to his existing contract, a 5-year contract he signed in 2019, which will now keep him under contract through the 2025 season.
“I’m grateful for the commitment and support N.C. State has provided to my family and I,” Doeren said at the time. “This University and community are home to us, we’re excited with what we’re building with NC State football and I look forward to continuing to lead this program.”
Doeren currently makes $3.25 million per year, middle of the pack in the ACC.
Hired away in 2013 after a 23-4 run at Northern Illinois, Doeren is 55-46 in eight seasons at NC State. Excluding his 3-9 debut, Doeren has won between seven and nine games six times in seven seasons. The high point to date arrived in 2013, when the Wolfpack went 9-4 with a Sun Bowl victory, a second place finish in the ACC Atlantic and a No. 23 final ranking in the AP poll. The club climbed as high as No. 14 in the middle of that year, which stands as the program's highest ranking at any point since 2002.
This past season, NC State rebounded from a 4-8 2019 campaign with an 8-4 mark (7-3 ACC) and a Gator Bowl appearance.
