Gottfried Fired As Coach

A quick followup to my previous post. Apparently, NC State University athletics lied once again to the media. Nearly identical to the Sidney Lowe firing which it claimed was false and misleading Athletics Director Debbie Yow fired head basketball coach Mark Gottfried today. It is one thing to say “no comment” or to remain silent. But for a university to blatantly lie to the media is not only in bad taste but defies ethical behavior at a publically funded university level.


Say what you will about the UNC cheating scandal. But college athletics must be held to a higher level of ethics and disclosure. But Debbie Yow and the NC State University staff lying to media outlets creates a level of distrust not only by its fan base but to the people of North Carolina. For that, Debbie Yow and those that supported her false statements should be terminated from the University immediately.
