It is not surprising given Gottfried’s success. In four years at N.C. State, he’s led the Pack to four NCAA Tournament appearances, including two Sweet 16s. He is just the third coach in ACC history to lead his team to the big dance in his first four years.
Gottfried’s recruiting continues to go well after signing five-star point guard Dennis Smith from Fayetteville (N.C.) Trinity Christian on Thursday.
Moore has also been recruiting well in women’s hoops, signing a three-player class rated 12th best nationally by ESPN this week.
Under the terms of the new deal, Gottfried’s compensation rises from $2.06 million to $2.48 million.
