N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried received mixed reactions Wednesday night when he was recognized during team introductions before the team’s 97-73 loss Wednesday against North Carolina.
There were both boos and cheers from fans as his name was called, but most expressed their displeasure with him. There were both Wolfpack and Tar Heel fans at the game, however.
Gottfried, who is in his sixth season at N.C. State, has come under fire in recent weeks, with some fans calling for his job.
Athletic Director Debbie Yow has said publicly she plans to evaluate Gottfried’s job status after the season.
Never miss a local story.
