It may be a slow news day for UK sports, but it’s not in the world of college basketball. NC State has fired head coach Mark Gottfried after six seasons. The Wolfpack is coming off three embarrassing blowouts vs. #10 North Carolina, Wake Forest, and Florida State. Gottfried is 122-82 during his time in Raleigh, but this year’s 14-13 mark — 3-11 in ACC play — was enough for NC State to cut him loose. He will coach the Wolfpack through the rest of this season.
Don’t worry, Mark; there will probably be two openings in the SEC after this season if LSU and Missouri keep their horrible basketball up.
