According to Go Pack, Doeren will receive a $250k raise over the next five seasons. His full contract will run until 2023 and the compensation has increased from $3 million to $3.25 million.
The Wolfpack hired Doeren in 2013. He has gone (43-34) in six seasons with the Wolfpack. The record doesn’t seem like a tremendously accomplishment. However, the Wolfpack finished with a (3-9) record during Doeren’s first season in Raleigh. He has produced five straight winning seasons, including a pair of (9-4) records over the last two years. The Wolfpack are also (3-2) in Bowl games under Doeren. They are close to reaching a new level. Therefore, coaching stability will be the major factor to get the Wolfpack over the hump.
“I’m grateful for the commitment and support NC State has provided to my family and I,” said Doeren. “This University and community are home to us, we’re excited with what we’re building with NC State football and I look forward to continuing to lead this program.”
The Wolfpack have won 11 conference games over the last two seasons., They were (6-2) during the 2017 season. They were (5-3) last season. However, the biggest questions will arise against the Clemson Tigers moving forward. The Wolfpack should have defeated the Tigers two years ago. Instead, they lost 38-31 in a thrilling matchup. They also lost to the Tigers by seven points in 2016. However, the Tigers dominated the Wolfpack last season and won 41-7.
Until Doeren wins this game, the Wolfpack will be second fiddle in the ACC. According to 247 Sports, the Wolfpack have the No. 29 ranked recruiting class in 2019. They are on the right path to challenge at the top of the ACC.
The Wolfpack don’t have the toughest non conference schedule, but they do face the West Virginia Mountaineers in September. They open the ACC season with the Florida State Seminoles. The Wolfpack host the Syracuse Orange on Thursday Oct. 10. They won’t play the (Clemson) Tigers until Homecoming on Nov. 9. Senior Day is on the final day of the regular season against the North Carolina Tar Heels.
