Debbie Yow to be new NC State AD?

COLLEGE PARK, Md. However, ABC11 Eyewitness News as learned from multiple sources that NC State will introduce Yow as their next athletic director Friday afternoon, but both the university and Yow herself have yet to officially confirm it.

Yow has spent 16 years at Maryland, and under her direction the Terrapins have won more than 20 NCAA championships, including titles by the 2002 men's basketball team, the 2006 women's basketball team and this year's women's lacrosse squad.

Yow's late sister, Kay Yow, was head coach of the North Carolina State women's basketball team. Kay Yow died in 2009 after a long battle with breast cancer.

Lee Fowler resigned as N.C. State's athletic director last month and will be leaving on June 30.

Chancellor Randy Woodson formed a search committee and hired an executive search firm to find Fowler's replacement.

In a text message to The Associated Press, Yow wrote Thursday night: "I am visiting their search committee tomorrow."
