Fowler Issues a Statement

NC State athletic director Lee Fowler released a statement today following the announcement from the university that he will step down as Director of Athletics.

"Naturally I am disappointed that I will not see firsthand the fruits of 10 year's work, but I have the greatest confidence that with the caliber of facilities and coaches we now have, along with a talented and dedicated administrative staff, the athletics program is poised for great success going forward.

I thank Chancellors Fox, Oblinger, Woodward and Woodson for the privilege of working under their excellent leadership. I want to thank and acknowledge Donn Ward and the great NC State faculty for their unwavering support.

"Additionally, my family and I want to express our thanks for the outpouring of love and support we've received. Finally, I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for His faithfulness in guiding my decisions and look forward to what His blessings will bring to NC State and me."
