Tennessee turning attention toward Kevin Sumlin

Tennessee's coaching search apparently will continue as North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren is staying with the Wolfpack. With AP Photos.North Carolina State has announced that it has agreed to a new contract with football coach Dave Doeren. Doeren, 45, became the latest candidate not to reach an agreement with Tennessee, which also pursued Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy and Purdue's Jeff Brohm this week. Doeren was hired by athletic director Debbie Yow after the 2012 season to build a top-25 program.

Rumors went around that Coach Doeren was looking at possible coaching positions in MS and the University of Tennessee. With an 8-4 season and the possibility for a ninth win this season, Doeren and the Wolfpack can resume working toward the task at hand.

"Dave has made significant strides in developing a complete program at N.C. State, and this new contract continues our commitment to his leadership", Yow said in a statement released by the school. She sweetened her offer on Wednesday, an unidentified News & Observer source said after Doeren began talking more seriously with Tennessee AD John Currie.

Spurs center Pau Gasol, Marc's older brother, believes those two facts to be unrelated. "It's weird, the timing of it". Gasol added that being in competitive situations, such as the fourth quarter of a close game, is what fuels him.

Doeren and Yow "made progress" on contract negotiations during the second half of the football season, but speculation about his future lingered and got to a boiling point this week when Tennessee attempted to lure Doeren away.

Since Tennessee offered the job to Greg Schiano before backing away on Sunday, at least three coaches have turned down the Vols.

Former Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is "not interested" in Tennessee's coaching vacancy, Fox Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb posted Thursday night on his Twitter account.
