Dave Doeren is North Carolina State's New Head Football Coach

Debbie Yow has her man. North Carolina State has hired Northern Illinois’ Dave Doeren as its next head football coach. He will start at around $1.8 million per season.

“Coach Dave Doeren is a highly motivated overachiever who shares our goals to pursue aggressively a high level of achievement in the classroom and on the field of competition,” stated Yow.

Doeren went 23-4 in two years at Northern Illinois, 15-1 inside the MAC. His 2012 team went 12-1, beat Kent State 44-37 last night to win the MAC title and ranked in the Top 15 in both yards per play offense and yards per play defense. He’s definitely a solid coach.

Whether he can recruit on a top level to push N.C. State from mediocre to awesome remains to be seen. For all the ambition, this remains a program that has won double-digit games once.
