RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina State says Sidney Lowe has resigned after five seasons as men's basketball coach.
Lowe had an 86-78 overall record, but just 25-55 in Atlantic Coast Conference play. He inherited a program coming off five straight NCAA tournament trips, but he never finished higher than ninth in the ACC despite twice being picked to finish in the top third of the 12-team league.
In a statement from the school Tuesday evening, Lowe says he had been "truly blessed" by the opportunity to coach the program he led to a national championship as a player in 1983.
His resignation comes less than a week after N.C. State closed with a loss to Maryland in the first round of the ACC tournament.
