RALEIGH, NC (WRAL) - Dave Doeren will stay in Raleigh and remain NC State's head coach.
After 48 hours of speculation, sources told WRAL News Thursday that Doeren will stay put and sign a contract extension.
The deal, which isn't finalized but has been in the works for weeks, will likely include a salary increase for Doeren. The contract could end up paying him about $3 million a year, sources said.
The contract will also likely include several performance-based incentives.
Doeren's decision to say ends two days of concern that he might leave Raleigh for the University of Tennessee.
