Welcome to the Fire "Coach" Lee Fowler website!  
.
.
 

Friends, fellow alumni, well wishers, enemies, even worse enemies, and of course Lee, welcome to the long-awaited site for all of us long-suffering NCSU fans and alumni who seriously want to see Lee Fowler go away, anywhere but Raleigh. His mismanagement of our athletics department has caused us national embarrassment several times, viz. the search for Herb Sendek's replacement, his handling of the Chuck Amato "situation", and his open letter chastising the fans for not being supportive enough of Chuck.

What's worse is what Lee Fowler is NOT doing: successfully leading the NCSU Athletics Department toward any measure of success while constantly speaking tired nonsense about our facilities (enough already).

May 4, 2010: Lee Fowler Steps Down

Finally, relief. In what has been an anguishing decade for NC State fans and students but a positive delight to NC State's enemies, NC State Chancellor Randy Woodson made one of his first duties in his new position at the helm of the University to send Lee packing. Apparently, we now learn that it was interim Chancellor Jim Woodward who sent Lee packing back in March giving him time to find another job before the firing was made public.

Finally. And good riddance. Now to re-establish NC State athletics. Several things come to mind at once.

Foremost, the folks at StateFansNation sure do know what they're talking about. They have been on top of this story from the beginning, despite hard accusations to the contrary. I guess the "Lunatic Fringe" on the Internets that Lee complained about was right all along. (He was most assuredly referring to this site and StateFansNation.) Lee Fowler casually dismissed the collective anguish of a growing legion of Pack fans on the Internet as the "Lunatic Fringe" and went right on with business as usual, angering students and alumni while presiding over a worsening athletics department with absolutely no accountability nor any effort to improve.

Secondly, the nonsense from Gopack.com is ridiculous and embarrassing. Extolling the virtues of Lee Fowler as an AD is pure comedy to everyone in the know both within and withal NC State University. Come on? The site offers puff pieces in Times New Roman 12. If they can't be realistic can they at least get with the times? GoPack.com is rubbish and I cannot name one NC State fan who gets their information from it. The definitive sources for NC State athletics (plural) are the message boards, i.e StateFansNation, PackPride, The Wolf Web, and The Brickyard.

Third, this site can happily cease to exist. What a joyous occasion it is for this site's raison d'etre to come to an end... unless the folks at Mississippi State are idiots. If they hire him, this site will be coming to you from Starkville, MS in the near future.



Important Update:
As of March 13, 2010, fury and apathy continue to characterize the NC State fanbase toward quite possibly the worst AD in the nation. Our friends at StateFansNation have put together an article that, quite frankly, has a great many NC State fans stirred up. It seems that the forces to oust Lee Fowler (all long overdue) are starting to coalesce. How could they not??

Read the full article here.

Here are some key points from the article linked above.

"Fowler has made himself a candidate for at least a half dozen other jobs since he has been at NC State and (obviously) nobody will hire him. Early in his time in Raleigh he took swings at jobs like Tennessee, Ohio State, Georgia and even Indiana a few years ago. In recent years, Fowler has quietly been turned down by some smaller schools."

"Related to this point – SFN has recently learned that within the last few months Lee Fowler made himself a candidate for the open Athletics Directorship at San Diego State University. Unfortunately for all of us, Fowler was again passed over for the job when Jim Sterk was announced about a month ago."

From his laughably incompetent administration of our Athletics Department we can only conclude that he will not be hired away. Couple that with his league-leading high salary (and contract extension??) and we have a recipe for a bad situation. Hopefully the rumor mill contains some grains of truth of late. How much longer can our University continue the downward trajectory? Three words: Fire.Lee.Fowler.

 

In the meantime, here are some excellent articles and related comments over at StateFansNation. They are very clever and well written and thus an excellent launch pad for the new reader:

I had written the below long ago (and it's still there) on the Fire Chuck Amato website. And now it continues to be the case nearly a year and a half later.

Now there's only one more RAT at NC State who needs to go: Lee Fowler. Happily, Chuck is now long gone. With head coach Tom O'Brien now in charge of the NCSU football program, this site has completed its mission. The Trustees, the Chancellor, the Alumni, the students, and the fanbase all got what they wanted this Christmas - a new head football coach - despite heavy resistance from our "in over his head" AD Lee Fowler. As a matter of fact, no one in the NCSU community is more despised (now that Chuck is gone) than Fowler who rightly needs to follow Chuck out the door.
