N.C. State hires ex-Alabama coach Gottfried

Mark Gottfried will be the next basketball coach at N.C. State.

Gottfried took two different programs — Alabama and Murray State — to the NCAA tournament in his 14-year career as a head coach.

There is a press conference scheduled for 5 p.m. today at Vaughn Towers at Carter-Finley Stadium.

Gottfried, 47, led the Crimson Tide to the NCAA tournament five times in 10 seasons, between 1998 and 2008, coming within a game of the Final Four in 2004.

He resigned in Jan. 2009, 19 games into his 11th season.
