Maryland athletics director Debbie Yow confirmed this morning that she has accepted the AD job at N.C. State.
In a phone interview this morning, Yow talked about how she was won over by Randy Woodson, N.C. State's new chancellor. Yow, the sister of Kay Yow, the Wolfpack's Hall of Fame women's basketball coach who died last year after a long, public battle with cancer, and of Susan Yow, N.C. State's first women's All-American basketball player, also said her family's connections to State played a role in her decision to leave College Park, Md. for Raleigh.
"Probably the single most important thing was meeting the new chancellor and the shared values we have, and just the synergy of the meeting," Yow said. "I really just enjoyed talking to him. After having done that, my level of interest changed. It was heightened, but it has always been there because of my family's history at N.C. State."
