NC State Coach To Make Tandem Jump Into Stadium

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Mark Gottfried is jumping right into his new job as North Carolina State's basketball coach.

N.C. State says Gottfried will take a tandem parachute jump into Carter-Finley Stadium on Saturday night.

Gottfried will jump with the ROTC Ranger parachute team at halftime of the Wolfpack's football game against South Alabama.

The jump comes as part of the program's annual "Military Appreciation Day."

Gottfried was hired by N.C. State in April to replace Sidney Lowe.
