Two weeks or so ago, I first heard rumors that NC State was coming after Debbie Yow. I never for a second believed that anything would become of it. after all, 4 years ago , she turned down the Stanford AD job, perhaps one of the most coveted in the country. Then last night before the show I received 2 messages that indicated Debbie was about to take the job. I still was doubtful of her departure and had no chance to verify anything, thus no mention of it on Terp Talk. And then around 8:30, it was verified by many news outlets. I am still shocked. Look 16 National Championships in 16 years speaks volumes about the her job performance. Balancing the budget, her very successful recent coaching hires, and the continued facility upgrades were just a few of her achievements. But perhaps it was time for her to move on. We will hear a lot more tomorrow and I certainly will have much to say.
But let the speculation begin. Who will replace her? With Dr Mote retiring how will the process go? Who will run the ship while waiting for the new AD? There is never a dull moment at College Park. But you know what—IT IS STILL A GREAT DAY TO BE A TERP!!!!!!!!
