Doeren stepped in as the coach of the Wolfpack in 2013 and has done a solid job. The Wolfpack (8-4) are unranked in the AP Top 25 but are No. 24 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings. State's athletic director Debbie Yow is said to have added $750,000 to the assistant coaches pool.

Terms of the agreement haven't been released, but Doeren's decision to agree to terms ends the speculation that he might leave for the University of Tennessee.

He's known to be a close friend of former Tennessee coach Butch Jones, who was sacked on November 12.

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.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg reported that Doeren's new contract at N.C. State will be finalized "very soon", and potentially before Thursday is over.

"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. Kicker Chris Dunn and quarterback Devin Leary are the key additions in the class.
