Tennessee Interested in Kevin Sumlin After Dave Doeren Stays Put

The NC State Board of Trustees announced Thursday that the university affairs committee will hold a conference call Friday morning to "establish or instruct the public body's staff concerning the position to be taken by or on behalf of the public body in negotiating the amount of compensation and other material terms of an employment agreement contract or future employment contract".

State had been looking to lock up Doeren, whose existing contract runs through 2019, with athletics director Debbie Yow saying last month that school officials "want Dave here a long time and appreciate the progress that has been made".

Rumors went around that Coach Doeren was looking at possible coaching positions in MS and the University of Tennessee. Joe Giglio of The News & Observer reports that the length of an improved contract with the Wolfpack was "a major sticking point" with Doeren, and a five-year offer was what he was hoping to obtain. It is unclear whether Doeren was formally offered the Tennessee job to replace fired coach Butch Jones.

ESPN reported, citing a source, that Doeren and N.C. State have agreed in principle to a new five-year contract worth $3 million annually.

Doeren had previously spoken with OR and MS about their coaching vacancies and had long talks with Tennessee about replacing Butch Jones.

Doeren came to Raleigh in 2012 after going 23-4 in two seasons at Northern Illinois. Reports over the past few days have linked Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Purdue's Jeff Brohm to Tennessee's vacancy, but like Doeren, they have stayed put. Kicker Chris Dunn and quarterback Devin Leary are the key additions in the class. NC State had seven All-ACC selections this season, its highest total since 2002, while Bradley Chubb was honored as ACC Defensive Player of the Year. According to Wolken, Doeren even had his assistants cancel planned recruiting trips for that Sunday.
