Doeren signs extension through 2019

Kudos to Athletics Director, Debbie Yow, for proactively keeping Coach Doeren happy. Doeren received an increase in his annual guaranteed compensation from $1.8 million to $2.2 million. Doeren continues to have opportunities to earn additional compensation through an enhanced bonus structure for academic and competitive achievement.

It would have stunk to have done all of the wonderful work of moving out Tom O’Brien and finding Doeren and then lose him. The future is bright!

Feb. 20, 2015
RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State has signed head football coach Dave Doeren to a two-year contract extension through December of 2019, Director of Athletics Debbie Yow announced on Friday.

“When we hired Coach Doeren we realized he had the vision and commitment to elevate our program,” said Yow. “He is an outstanding leader, is committed to building a championship-level program the right way, and positively impacts the lives of our student-athletes. We look forward with anticipation to what he and his staff will do over the next several years.”

As part of the extension, Doeren received an increase in his annual guaranteed compensation from $1.8 million to $2.2 million. Doeren continues to have opportunities to earn additional compensation through an enhanced bonus structure for academic and competitive achievement.

Doeren also has the opportunity to earn additional contract years based on competitive achievement.

“My family and I are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of NC State, and for the tremendous support we’ve received from Chancellor (Randy) Woodson, Athletic Director Debbie Yow and the entire Wolfpack Nation,” said Doeren. “From an outstanding coaching staff to visible progress in adding and maintaining the best facilities, we have so much momentum right now and I’m excited for the future of NC State football.”

Friday’s announcement is another step in the growth and forward progress of the NC State football program.

Entering his third season in Raleigh, Doeren guided NC State to an 8-5 season in 2014, capped by a resounding victory over UCF in the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. The Wolfpack won four of their five games down the stretch, including a 35-7 victory at UNC-Chapel Hill to close out the regular season.

The five-game improvement for the Wolfpack in 2014 was the second-biggest increase in victories in the nation among all Power 5 conference programs.

Doeren has established the Wolfpack as the most balanced squad in the nation. His 2014 team amassed 2,659 yards rushing and 2,652 yards passing, a difference of just seven yards. Additionally, NC State rushed for 27 touchdowns and passed for 26.

In closing the 2014 season on a three-game winning streak, the Wolfpack outscored their final three opponents by an average of 21.3 points per game.

Notably, the breakthrough 2014 campaign was accomplished with a roster comprised largely of first and second-year players in the program. The Wolfpack returns 99 percent of its passing yards, 86 percent of its rushing yards, 69 percent of its receiving yards and 73 percent of its tackles for the 2015 season.

On the recruiting trail, the 2015 signing class is one of the most heralded in program history. The Wolfpack inked four of the Top 10 prospects in North Carolina for the first time ever and four of the Top 250 prospects nationally for the first time since 2003.

NC State will also open the Close-King Indoor Practice Facility later this spring, cementing the Carter-Finley Stadium Complex as one of the finest football facilities in the nation.

    Smart for recruiting. Prospects know the HC they signed with will be at that school for their time of enrollment.

    Now he will have to handle the expectations that come with the raise. Keeping the staff together is important so i hope that is being addressed along with CDD. I know Canada got a raise, but they also need to focus on guys like Kitchings, etc.

    BTW, someone may want to fix the football schedule dates on the right side of the screen. They are all off a week or so, and some are completely wrong. E.g. we play Clemson on Halloween (10/31). It looks like this might be last year’s dates with this year’s games.

    I like DD. I think he’ll be here a while. I think NC State basketball and NC State football are vastly different entities with different expectations. I know that DD is young and has a world of potential.

    Having said all of that, I wonder if we’ve not learned something from our contract situation with Gott. Like we did with Gott after year 1, Deb’s signed an extension and raise based on “early returns.” Will we regret this move in a few years? I say the chances are less likely than with Gott, but it still makes one wonder……

    Cool beans. Hope Coach DD is here for a long, successful tenure.

    I also wonder if this counts as more ‘negative recruiting’ news for the Frauds.

    Doeren turned the season around, delivered a win over our rival in their house, and had one of the best recruiting years in a very long time. That all said, he earned his raise.

    State needs to lock down a coach like Doeren if they want to rise above the middle of the pack and rise up to the next level. We’re not a school who’s going to be able to go and grab a Nick Saban or an Urban Meyer and get the instant success that kind of coach brings, simply because we can’t afford it even if we could get them to come here.

    So, we need to do it the old-fashioned way: have steady “organic” growth instead of splashing the cash to achieve instant success. Doeren is showing signs he is up to the task, and he’s saying the right things about not wanting to move because he has young kids, etc. So again, his raise makes sense.

    If a win in Chapel Hill, on top of an ACC and overall losing record is worth this much, think of how much he can make if State ever breaks .500 in the ACC.

    Mind-boggling.

    I agree with this entire post. I think he is going to be successful but whats the rush to do this contract? He isnt going anywhere and if he has a great year next season and a big boy school still wants him this extension isnt going to matter. Just a bit of odd timing IMO.

    Great to have him signed with an extension and i think you will see dave play more of the style of offense he wants to run with a strong stable of running backs next year. We are going to pound the ball and open up an opportunistic passing game next year. Should be exciting.

    Die hard state fan from the crystal coast!

    “…cementing the Carter-Finley Stadium Complex as one of the finest football facilities in the nation.”

    I hope not many actually take this declaration at face value and repeat it. Top 30 perhaps sure…

    ^How many football facilities are there in the nation? A lot. Top 30 is one of the finest.

    I saw Jamious is already trashing FSU’s facilities and talking up how nice Michigan’s are and how he wished he could have played for Harbourgh. What a dirt bag. I know the capacity of our stadium is not as large as the big timers, but I would think with the indoor opening up our “facilities” are right up there with most. What is included when you talk about facilities and I wonder how ours truly does rank?

    This appears to put him at the middle of the conference – 8th or 9th highest pay, depending on if Duke has upped Cutcliffe’s salary (same for The Asterisk, although I have a hard time believing they would be anteing up on The Hat right now).

    IMO based on potential demonstrated in our late season performance and recruiting success, this is fair. Glad they got this done.
