Non Head Coach

David William Doeren (born December 3, 1971) is an American football coach currently serving as the head football coach at North Carolina State University. He was previously the head coach at Northern Illinois University and has been an assistant at the University of Wisconsin, University of Kansas, University of Montana, and University of Southern California. He played college football at Drake University, where he also held his first assistant coaching position.


Doeren is married with three children.[1] He is a native of Shawnee, Kansas and attended Drake University where he played on the football team.[2]

Coaching career

Doeren's first coaching job was as wide receivers and defensive line coach at Shawnee Mission Northwest High School in Shawnee, KS.

College linebackers / defense coordinator

From there he served as linebackers coach and defensive coordinator of the Drake Bulldogs. Later he became a graduate assistant with the USC Trojans before being named secondary coach of the Montana Grizzlies, where he was a member of the 2001 national championship team. Doeren was linebackers coach with the Kansas Jayhawks from 2002 to 2005 before becoming linebackers coach and co-defensive coordinator of the Wisconsin Badgers. He was given the sole title of defensive coordinator in 2008.

Northern Illinois Huskies football

On December 13, 2010, he was named the new head coach of the NIU Huskies.

2011 season

Doeren led the Huskies to a Mid-American Conference Championship and a win in the GoDaddy.com Bowl in his first year.

2012 season

On November 30, 2012, the Huskies won a second consecutive MAC Championship and would go on to become the first MAC team to earn a BCS bid with a trip to the 2013 Orange Bowl. Doeren did not coach the Orange Bowl, which NIU lost to Florida State. Doeren's salary per year was raised to $420,000 in 2012 and he was under contract at NIU until 2017.[3][4]

North Carolina State University

On December 1, 2012, Athletic Director Debbie Yow announced that Doeren would be the new head coach of the Wolfpack. In his first season at the helm, the Wolfpack compiled a record of 39 and failed to win an ACC game.[5] In his second season, they improved to 8–5 (one of the fastest turnarounds in school history), and won the 2014 St. Petersburg Bowl. They also posted a decisive 35-7 win against archrival North Carolina.[6] Doeren accomplished all this with the 3rd youngest team in the nation.[7]
