Kay Yow to Step Down for Remainder of Season

submitted by dp1974 on Wednesday, January 7 at 3:44 PM

NC State director of athletics Lee Fowler and head women’s basketball coach Kay Yow announced jointly Tuesday that Yow is stepping away from her coaching duties for the remainder of the 2008-09 season. Yow has coached 34 seasons at NC State and has recorded 737 victories in her Hall of Fame career – the sixth-most in NCAA women’s basketball history.

Yow’s current health situation simply will not allow her to give the energy necessary to coach her team at the standard she feels it deserves. She will revisit this decision no later than the end of the current 2008-09 campaign.

“Stepping away from coaching is one of the hardest decisions I have had to make, but I have great confidence in the experienced staff I have been working with for such a long time and the character of everyone involved in the program to respond positively to my decision,” said Yow.

Wolfpack fans are encouraged to pass along their well-wishes to Coach Yow by visiting here.

Sad and all, but why doesn't she just find a replacement and focus on her health 100%?

Her health is not gonna get 100%.. Coach Glance has been her assistant for a LOOOONG time and pretty much has been coaching the team for the past few years. She will have no problem filling the void.

Word has it that the cancer has spread to her spine and the outlook is not good.

Oh I never mentioned it would get to 100%. I just want her to focus 100% of her time on her health. Probably best to retire and pass the torch. Really sucks though.
