Following an undefeated home season that saw the Wolfpack gain bowl eligibility for the seventh time in nine years, NC State has extended head football Coach Dave Doeren through 2026, Director of Athletics Boo Corrigan announced today.
Additionally, all 10 assistant coaches have also received new agreements.
The new agreement for Doeren, which also includes a compensation increase, was approved by the NC State Board of Trustees and the UNC System Board of Governors in recent days.
“Dave continues to provide tremendous leadership for NC State Football and elevate the standards for our program,” said Corrigan. “We continue to see competitive growth, academic growth and there is great continuity among our entire staff. Dave and Sara are deeply invested in both the NC State and Raleigh communities and we’re excited for even greater days ahead.”
NC State has won at least eight games four times in the last five seasons, with three nine-win seasons in that time. Doerenis the only coach in NC State football history to post three nine-win seasons.
“NC State is home for my entire family and I’m so grateful to Chancellor Woodson and Boo Corrigan for their support and commitment to Wolfpack Football,” said Doeren. “We continue to build something special in Raleigh and I’m so excited about the future.”
In the past two seasons, NC State ranks second in the ACC in league wins, posting a 13-5 record. In the Power 5, only eight other teams have posted more wins than the Wolfpack (Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St., and Texas A&M). Doeren has led the Wolfpack to 10 straight wins at Carter-Finley, including all seven home games of 2021.
Doeren enters his 10th season in Raleigh as the second-winningest coach in school history. During his tenure, 21 Wolfpack players have been drafted by the NFL, including 14 in the last four drafts.
