Dave Doeren faces a major decision. He can stay coaching at N.C. State, with a new contract that includes a raise, or jump to Tennessee.

Fans on both sides have definite opinions. Here are a few:

Tennesee fans, well, they aren’t exactly excited about how this search is going.

Do not do this @john_currie! We do not want @statecoachd Doeren! We want @lane_kiffin & let him bring @coachtee17 home! Listen to Tennessee people!!!

Personally, I think Dorean is a good hire. He built an elite defense at NC State this year. You give him UT resources and I think he make this job appealing for the next coach.

Tweet at Dave Doeren @StateCoachD and tell him we do not want him @ #Tennessee Retweet! #GBO #Vols #NOren

They're gonna go to Dave Doeren before Tee Martin. What a total embarrassment.

@John_Currie @ChancellorDav I am done as a volunteer fan if true. Don’t send me anything asking for alumni donations. https://t.co/CrdGueedwa

Doeren is Butch Jones in a weaker conference...end of discussion

If he picks UT a lot of Tennessee fans are done. I'm burning my stuff. #GoVols

@StateCoachD Take the deal at State. I know you aren’t dumb. #FireCurrie #FireCurrieNow #FireJohnCurrie https://t.co/6tfPjnobws

Meanwhile, NC State fans appear to be torn.

One of my Carolina fan coworkers weighed in on the Doeren situation right as I hopped off the elevator. She hopes he leaves. That validates every belief I have that he should stay.

Disagree! If YOU were offered a huge pay increase at another job, wouldn't you consider the merits of both options?!?!? I don't fault Doeren. Quite frankly, #WPN had best get accustomed to others wanting to recruit him! It will happen again!

I would personally be happy if Dave Doeren left for Tennessee. Make him their problem while they throw him millions.

As a State fan I will be ecstatic if Tennessee makes the mistake of hiring Dave Doeren as their head coach.
