Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow says she hasn't interviewed with a committee selecting the next athletic director at North Carolina State.
N.C. State said last month that Lee Fowler would soon depart after 10 years. A 13-member search committee was named to find his successor.
Yow's name has come up in the North Carolina media. An "ACC Insider" blog item last month in the Wilmington (N.C.) Star-News included Yow on a list of four people it said were "among the most prominent names already mentioned for the job."
There was no confirmation that Yow is a candidate.
Yow said in an e-mail reply to a Sun query: "I have not interviewed with the N.C. State Search committee and, in the past, have likewise declined to be interviewed by other universities who have shown interest in me."
Yow, who became Maryland athletic director in 1994, is from North Carolina. Her sister, Kay, who died in 2009, coached the Wolfpack women's basketball team for 34 years.
