Athletics director Debbie Yow of N.C. State finds herself in a search for a basketball coach for the second time in six years and this time with an end date to her tenure at the school.
Yow is confident her pending retirement, planned for July 2019, will not affect the search for Mark Gottfried’s replacement.
“I could be wrong but I don’t think it complicates the hiring process,” Yow said. “Two and a half years is a long time in intercollegiate athletics. It’s like how they count dog years. So much happens in one year, it feels like seven.”
