The Drive Thursday 12-15-11- Mark Gottfried joins The Drive to talk with the guys about the Wolfpack taking on the #1 ranked Syracuse Orangemen on Saturday.
Coach Gottfried comes to Raleigh by way of Alabama where he was the head coach of the Crimson Tide for the past 11 years. Before that Gottfried was head coach from 1995 to 1998 at Murray State University and compiled a 68–24 overall record. On April 5, 2011, Gottfried accepted the job as head coach of the NC State Wolfpack men’s basketball team. To celebrate the upcoming basketball season, Gottfried planned to perform a tandem skydive into Carter Finley Stadium during halftime of a football game. The jump, scheduled for September 17, 2011, was canceled due to weather concerns.
