News & Observer
Former N.C. State basketball coach Sidney Lowe was arrested Monday in Wake County and charged with failure to file and pay state income tax in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Bail was set at $10, 000 but Lowe, 53, was released on Monday, according to court documents, on a written promise to appear in court. He has a court date in Wake County scheduled for March 19. The charge is a misdemeanor.
Lowe was the point guard on N.C. State’s national championship team in 1983 and returned to his alma mater in 2006 to be the head coach.
He resigned in March 2011 after compiling an 86-78 record, and just 25-55 in the ACC, in five seasons with the Wolfpack. A longtime NBA coach and assistant, he returned to the pro game as an assistant with the Utah Jazz last season.
