Notes on Debbie Yow from around the area….

“Debbie Yow is a proven athletic director at the highest level, and a true professional,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford.

Her hiring met with approval from those familiar with the program and familiar with her.

“I’ve known Debbie a long time as a basketball coach, teacher and administrator, and I have watched her work herself into a position as one of the most respected athletic directors in the country, barring gender,” said former NC State player Debbie Antonelli, now a college basketball television commentator. “”She is someone who really cares about student-athletes, and has always done so, and I think the student-athletes at NC State should feel very good about her as someone who has vision, who has experience dealing with helping student-athletes become the best they can be and the ability to put together a staff and an administration that she will help develop through solid leadership and direction.

“As a former NC State student-athlete, I want to see my university continue to thrive, and I think Debbie is just the person to help us do that.”

    Chuck Amato, Sidney Lowe, Debbie Yow, etc..—When will NC State quit trying to live in the past? They may be the least successful overall athletic program in the ACC and now they take another step backward. LOL

    Chuck Amato has been gone from State for 4 years.
    Debbie Yow graduated from Elon.
    Sidney Lowe is about to have his team make major progress with this recruiting class and Tracy Smith returning. See who will LOL a year from now.
