Former Timberwolves coach arrested on tax charges

RALEIGH, N.C. — Former North Carolina State basketball coach Sidney Lowe has been charged with failing to file his state income taxes for three years.

The state Department of Revenue said that Lowe didn't file returns in 2009, 2010 or 2011. He was booked at the Wake County jail Monday and released on a $10,000 unsecured bond.

Lowe was the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves from 1992 to 1994. He also played with the team prior to the first of two stints as an assistant coach for the Wolves.

Lowe was a player for North Carolina State in the early 1980s and coached the Wolfpack for five seasons before resigning in 2011. He never made the NCAA tournament as a coach.

Lowe is currently an assistant coach for the Utah Jazz. A spokesman says the team was aware of reports about Lowe's arrest but had no comment. Lowe also couldn't be reached for comment, and it wasn't known if he had an attorney.
