Sendek Accepts Arizona State Job

April 2, 2006

PHOENIX (AP) _ North Carolina State men’s basketball coach Herb Sendek has accepted an offer to become the coach at Arizona State, an official with knowledge of the deal confirmed Saturday night.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because there has been no formal announcement.

CBS Sports reported that Sendek had accepted the offer earlier Saturday.

Arizona State athletic director Lisa Love, who attended the Sun Devils’ spring football scrimmage Saturday in Tempe, was unavailable for comment.

Sendek is 258-158 in 13 seasons as a head coach, the last 10 with North Carolina State, where he is 191-132. He spent his first three seasons with Miami of Ohio.

Sendek led the Wolfpack to five straight NCAA tournament appearances, reaching the third round in 2005.

The Sun Devils have been looking for a coach since March 10, when Love announced that Rob Evans would not return next season.
