Mark Gottfried fired at NC State, will finish season

Gustavo BishopFeb 17 , 2017

After denying reports it planned to fire head coach Mark Gottfried at the end of the season, N.C. State announced Thursday that it plans to fire head coach Mark Gottfried at the end of the season. He will reportedly finish the season as the Wolfpack coach.

Gottfried's Wolfpack are towards the bottom of the ACC this season, at 14-13 with just a 3-11 record in the rugged basketball conference.

UK Inflation At 31-Month High; Input Prices Soar
MSCI's benchmark global equity index rose 0.7 percent to 444.22 points .MIWD00000PUS , after touching a record high of 444.29. Consumers in the United States shelled out a total $472.1 billion in January, a 0.4 percent increase over the prior month.

NC State, which has dropped six in a row, and which lost at home to North Carolina four days after losing at Wake Forest by 30, has four games remaining, plus at least one game in the ACC tournament.

In his first four seasons at the helm, Gottfried's team earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament, reaching the Sweet 16 on two occasions.

Miami Dolphins save $15.7 million by cutting Mario Williams and Brandon Albert
The release of 2006 No 1 overall pick Williams was expected after a disappointing season in Miami. Albert had two years left on his contract, but neither season carried any guaranteed money.

Gottfried has a 122-82 record in six seasons at NC State.

"It has been a privilege to serve as head coach of NC State and I'm proud of what we have accomplished during my time here", Gottfried said in a press release. He had three years - worth an estimated $2.3 million - on his deal. Armstrong added that he was told that the University nearly let Gottfried go after the Wolfpack's lopsided loss at Wake Forest Saturday but administrators ultimately made a decision to wait until NC State's season ended. Wednesday's game was closer but not enough to save Gottfried's job. Gottfried, apparently, asked AD Debbie Yow if he could finish the season as part of the responsibility to his players. The issue then became that he failed to translate his major recruiting victory in actual wins or defensive aptitude.

As for a potential replacement, Armstrong reported N.C. State has put out "preliminary feelers" gauging Dayton head coach Archie Miller's interest in the job.
