RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina State’s Board of Trustees has approved a new contract for football coach Dave Doeren.

School spokesman Fred Demarest said Friday that the deal is worth $3 million annually over five years.

The approval came a day after the school announced Doeren had agreed to the new deal.

Doeren is 33-30 in five seasons at N.C. State and his 56-34 career record includes two years at Northern Illinois. The Wolfpack (8-4, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 24 CFP) will play in their fourth consecutive bowl and will learn their destination and opponent on Sunday.
