Sidney Lowe To Resign as NC State Head Coach

It’s too bad Sid couldn’t set the NCSU ship back on course. Good luck to him in his next adventure. From the News Observer: “N.C. State needs a new basketball coach. Sidney Lowe resigned today, ending his tenure at his alma mater. He went 86-78 in five seasons, with a 25-55 mark in ACC play. The popular former Wolfpack player, who was captain of the 1983 national title team, upgraded the program’s talent the last two seasons but couldn’t move out of the bottom third of the conference standings or into the NCAA tournament. In five seasons under Lowe, N.C. State failed to make the NCAA tournament once. Under the terms of his contract, which has two years remaining, Lowe’s buyout is worth about $700,000.”

    Herb Sendeck days ftw

    Sidney had to go…I felt his team underachieved year after year. NC State never had UNC or Duke level of talent, but they should’ve been a much better team, record wise. Wonder if the NC State fans regret running Herb Sendek out of town…

    Wonder if Sid will get a better job now.. Like Sendek did.

    State had two years of top recruiting and this coming year will 3. I think that is what hurt Lowe so much these past couple of years was he stepped up the recruiting and still couldn’t win.
