Ex-Wolfpack coach Gottfried sues NC State for buyout money
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Former North Carolina State men's basketball coach Mark Gottfried is suing the school for buyout money he says has been improperly withheld.
Attorneys for Gottfried - now Cal State Northridge's head coach - filed the lawsuit in a North Carolina federal court Monday, saying N.C. State violated a March 2017 termination agreement. N.C. State was due to pay Gottfried remaining salary in monthly installments through the April 2020 end of his contract, according to a copy of the agreement filed with the lawsuit.
But the complaint states the school hasn't paid Gottfried since August 2018.MORE
