RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Former North Carolina State guard Dereck Whittenburg is back on the Wolfpack's coaching staff.
Coach Mark Gottfried said Monday that Whittenburg would be the senior assistant to the head coach and director of player development.
Whittenburg is most famous for launching the airball that the late Lorenzo Charles dunked just before the buzzer to give the Wolfpack a victory over heavily favored Houston in the 1983 national championship game.
He was a graduate assistant at N.C. State in 1985-86 and was an assistant coach on the Wolfpack staff from 1988-91. He spent a combined 10 seasons as a head coach at Wagner and Fordham, and led Wagner to the 2003 NCAA tournament.
Gottfried says Whittenburg ``brings a wealth of not only experience, but of knowledge and love for N.C. State.''
