Tennessee's search now turns toward Kevin Sumlin

Report Tennessee eyeing Kevin Sumlin Les Miles interested

"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".

Over at USA TODAY Sports, columnist Dan Wolken filed a story this afternoon on NC State and its football coach, Dave Doeren.

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.

The N.C. State board of trustees is expected to approve a five-year contract, worth about $3 million per year, on Friday.

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. Tennessee and Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano agreed to a deal Sunday, but the school backed out following public outcry and campus protests, plus government officials protesting on Twitter. The Wolfpack is 8-4 overall.

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

Germany's SPD spells out coalition conditions but no decision until party conference
The SPD will hold a party congress in Berlin on December 7-9, where it is expected to debate its options. But for the SPD the situation isn't almost as clear.

State made its first appearance in the national rankings since 2010 this season, climbing to No. 14 in the top 25 during a 6-1 start that was followed by back-to-back losses to top 10 teams Notre Dame and Clemson.

Doeren, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, had wanted a five-year deal, a raise that would put him in the middle of the ACC pecking order and a bigger pool of money for his assistant coaches.

With Doeren staying at NC State, Tennessee plans to talk to former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin, sources tell ESPN.

Sources tell us that he's made a decision to stay put, and that he was offered a higher salary and an extension on his contract.

Doeren had previously spoken with OR and MS about their coaching vacancies and had long talks with Tennessee about replacing Butch Jones.
