[4:15 p.m. update] ummmmmm ah who the hell knows anything anymore:


Amid report of tension and discord between NC State and Dave Doeren during contract extension talks, James Henderson of Inside Pack Sports is now reporting that Doeren is meeting with Tennessee today. IT’S GETTING REAL UP IN HERE PEOPLE.

However, there is also this from Henderson:

So ... uh, yeah, um hold onto your butts, everybody. Maybe this is an effort by Doeren to gain leverage, or maybe UT and Doeren are closer to getting something done than anyone would have guessed up to this point. I am not entirely sure how to feel about this whole situation, to be honest, what with this seeming to happen so quickly. Then again, if Doeren’s had the feelers out for a while, maybe it’s not so quick.

At any rate, set coaching search DEFCON 3 until further notice. If Doeren leaves, this will obviously have significant short-term repercussions for NC State’s program (i.e., recruiting) and things will get hectic around here fast.
