Tennessee chasing Dave Doeren after Jeff Brohm deal not reached

This means we may have the equivalent of a recruit's Signing Day hat dance in the works for Doeren. The Wolfpack is 8-4 overall.

It has taken Doeren some time, and there have been some bumps in the road, but Doeren has reached that goal. Among the 12 publicly available contracts, Doeren's current deal ranks 10th in the ACC, according to the USA Today database.

The victory over North Carolina gave Doeren his eighth win of the season, which automatically an extension of his contract through 2020.

A potential agreement between Tennessee and Ohio State defensive coordinator and former Rutgers coach Greg Schiano fell apart Sunday amid a public backlash.

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

Pete Thamel from Yahoo Sports also reported Doeren's decision to stay at N.C. State.

Dave Doeren, you're the next man up in Tennessee's long and winding coach search.

Doeren and Yow "made progress" on contract negotiations during the second half of the football season, but speculation about his future lingered and got to a boiling point this week when Tennessee attempted to lure Doeren away.

UPDATE: Joe Giglio of the News and Observer tweeted that reports of Doeren interviewing with Tennessee are inaccurate and reports about the Ole Miss job are overstated.

"Dave has made significant strides in developing a complete program at N.C. State, and this new contract continues our commitment to his leadership", Yow said in a statement released by the school.

Doeren, who will turn 46 Sunday, has a 33-30 record in five seasons in Raleigh. Kicker Chris Dunn and quarterback Devin Leary are the key additions in the class. His teams are 15-25 in conference play at State, and the 6-2 record against ACC teams this season was his first winning league record in Raleigh.

Doeren was already back on the road recruiting on Thursday.
