N.C. State’s Mark Gottfried to jump out of plane before Wolfpack’s football game with South Alabama this Saturday

Jump ball for N.C. State basketball coach Mark Gottfried?

No, he’s jumping out of an airplane.

from Andy Katz at www.espn.com:

The plan is for Gottfried to latch onto a trusted tandem jumper and land at the 50-yard line before kickoff of Wolfpack’s home football game against South Alabama. The person who will be guiding Gottfried to land is the same man who helped former President George H.W. Bush jump on his 80th birthday.

“I figured if he could survive it, I could survive it,” Gottfried said. “The No. 1 reason is to bring attention to our military since it’s military appreciation week. I want to say thank you to them. But we’re also trying to get attention for NC State basketball.”

Would Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski or North Carolina’s Roy Williams do something like this?

“They don’t have to,” Gottfried said. “We’re at a different point with our program. We have a long, long, long ways to go, about as long as that fall out of the plane.”
