NC State hires former Charlotte coach as assistant


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina State coach Mark Gottfried has hired former Charlotte head coach Bobby Lutz (lootz) as an assistant.

Lutz spent 12 seasons with the 49ers, leading his alma mater to five NCAA tournaments and three NITs. He was fired after the 2010 season and spent last year as an assistant at Iowa State.

Lutz served three years as an assistant at Charlotte before taking over there. He had previously served as head coach at Pfeiffer, helping the program become an NAIA power.

Lutz joins former South Carolina assistant Orlando Early on the staff under Gottfried, who replaced Sidney Lowe as Wolfpack coach last week.
