NC State

Doeren's contract details potential bonuses, perks

Posted December 6, 2012
Updated December 7, 2012

— North Carolina State head football coach Dave Doeren could be around longer and paid more than his 5-year, $1.8 million contract simply states.

According to the Memorandum of Understanding which was prepared for the Board of Trustees, Doeren’s contract stipulates that the former Northern Illinois head coach, who was hired by NC State on Dec. 1, will earn an automatic two-year extension if the Wolfpack finish in the Top 25 of either the AP or ESPN/USA Today polls following the 2013 or 2014 seasons.

Doeren will also receive bonus monies of up to $1 million for achieving athletic and academic goals. The bonus categories have been agreed on but have not been released because they still need to be approved by the Board of Trustees when they next meet in February. According to a school spokesperson, typical bonus categories include Federal Graduation Rates, Academic Performance Rates (APR), bowl appearances, and ACC championships. N.C.

Doeren will earn an annual base salary of $750,000 which is the lowest of any head football coach in the ACC, according to the USA Today college coaches database. However, Doeren will earn an ACC-high $1.05 million annually in “supplemental, non-salary compensation,” which includes media obligations, public appearances and fundraising activities.

According to the database, only Maryland’s Randy Edsall and Duke’s David Cutcliffe make less in total pay in the ACC than Doeren. Figures for Miami’s Al Golden were not available and Boston College recently parted ways with Frank Spaziani.

The university will not be liable for any payments past termination if the release if for-cause. If Doeren is let go without cause, NC State will be required to pay 100 percent of the salary owed for the remainder of the contract.

NC State will also pay Doeren’s $750,000 buyout obligation to Northern Illinois, cover moving expenses up to $10,000 and cover three months temporary housing up to $2,000 each month.

For personal use, Doeren will be provided two university vehicles with insurance and taxes covered, membership to The State Club, 20 suite tickets for football and six basketball tickets.

There is also a provision in the agreement that Doeren cannot seek or apply for other positions without prior notice to the NC State director of athletics.

Doeren was announced at a press conference Sunday, just one week after NC State fired Tom O’Brien. Doeren led Northern Illinois to a No. 15 ranking in the BCS which earned them an Orange Bowl bid where they will play Florida State.

NC State will appear in the Music City Bowl this season, although it will be offensive coordinator Dana Bible that will lead the team onto the field, not Doeren.

    Who cares how it's structured....he's getting $1.8million per year. Base salary plus other stuff (tv, public appearances, etc). He was getting $425k/year. Nice pay raise.

    $2000 can get you a pretty nice house in this area. I'm sure he's just got a temp apt. while they find a house, and then they'll move the family down. My guess, they'll be ina place a tad bigger that will carry a larger mortgage than that when it's all said and done.

    You guys act like he's getting nothing! Last time I was offered a chance to move away, my company was going to offer me less than half of that for moving expenses.

    Everyone forgets this key phrase "DESTINATION HIRE". He's said it a bunch. I think if successful, he'll be here a while.

    Bonuses plus they are looking for the best quality on a budget... just like everyone else not in the SEC or Big 10.

  • areyououtofyourmind Dec 7, 11:11 a.m.

    Love the HIGH salary offered. So, you were going after a proven, successful coach and ended up with the MAC at the cheapest rate in the ACC? Bwahahahaha. Bet if you would have stepped up to the plate, ol' Nick would have left Bama! I mean State is annually ranked higher than Bama aren't they? (in the minds of its delusional fans at least.) Get back to the shallow end before you hurt yourself.

    Eveidently you don't pay much attention to sports. Wisconssin coach left because they will not pay. He could not keep assistnats because they were paid so low and Wisconsin would not up it. Go ESPN and listen to his interview this morning on Mike and Mike.
