NC State Coach Dave Doeren denies UT offer

"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.

Tennessee has interest in former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, a source has told SI.

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.

Sources tell ESPN that Tennessee is now turning its attention to former Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, who was sacked by the school on November 21. Those talks began after the Volunteers backed out of the hiring agreement with Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano before that deal fell through following a public backlash and campus protests on Sunday.

Doeren, who has a 33-30 record at N.C. State, ultimately took significantly less money to stay in Raleigh.

A 12-megapixel shooter will be included on the back of that handset, while a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper is also expected. The Redmi 5A boasts of a 5-inch fully-laminated HD (1280 × 720) IPS display which offers good color reproduction and contrast.

Doeren came to Raleigh in 2012 after going 23-4 in two seasons at Northern Illinois.

Doeren's decision to remain at North Carolina State continues Tennessee's frustrating search for a coach following the November 12 firing of Jones, who went 34-27 in five seasons. He is preparing for the team for its fourth straight bowl appearance.

Doeren turned down a bigger offer from the SEC school to stay with the Wolfpack after his best season in Raleigh. However, this year was the first time he led NC State to a winning record in ACC play (6-2). The Wolfpack is 8-4 overall. Wins over Boston College and rival UNC sandwiched a tight loss at Wake Forest.

North Carolina State football coach Dave Doeren confirmed to multiple outlets on Thursday that he will remain at the school after discussing the Tennessee job.

Back in October, it was Wolken that reported Doeren and Yow were already negotiating a contract extension for the fifth-year coach. On Wednesday, it was Tennessee and Purdue coach Jeff Brohm.
