Former Grizzlies Coach to Take N.C State Job

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Detroit Pistons assistant coach and former Grizzlies head coach Sidney Lowe will return to North Carolina State.

He led N-C State to a national championship in 1983 under Jim Valvano.

N-C State has searched for a successor to Herb Sendek for the past month and announced today that it would introduce the

Wolfpack's new coach at a news conference Saturday.

The school had unsuccessfully courted Memphis coach John Calipari and Texas' Rick Barnes. N-C State last week was turned

down by John Beilein of West Virginia University and former U-C-L-A coach Steve Lavin.
