Sidney Lowe Steps Down As Head Coach

March 15, 2011

RALEIGH, NC - Coach Sidney Lowe and Athletic Director Deborah A. Yow announced today the plan for him to leave as head men's basketball coach after five years at NC State.

"I have been truly blessed by the opportunity to coach at my alma mater," stated Lowe. "I am thankful for this experience. I am excited to follow the path the Lord takes me on as I maintain my relationship with the Wolfpack family for years to come."

"Coach Lowe is an important part of the Wolfpack family," Yow said. "All of his efforts during the past five years are much appreciated. I personally have enjoyed our interaction during the year. We look forward to opportunities where Sidney can share his expertise on agent issues and other student welfare topics without interfering with his future career opportunities. He will always be part of the Wolfpack family."

In his five seasons leading the Wolfpack as head coach, Lowe amassed an overall record of 86-78 (.524) and 25-55 (.313) in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately and Associate Head Coach, Monte Towe, will continue in his current role and lead the program in the interim.
