This isn’t a bad deal at all for everyone involved. Doeren is quietly one of the better coaches in college football.
He’s finished with at least seven wins during his other six seasons.
When you’re not an elite program and you find a coach who can routinely get you seven or eight wins, then you keep him around.
Now, he’s sticking around for at least a few more years.
If you’re a fan of the Wolfpack, today is 100% a great day. Extending Doeren was the right call.
