Sam Esposito Newsbeat

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Former baseball coach [and MLB player] Sam Esposito, 86, was ‘at the root of every success story at NC State’

Sam Esposito is the thread that connects the biggest sports accomplishments N.C. State’s history.

Esposito led the Wolfpack baseball program to the College World Series in 1968. He was an assistant basketball coach on their 1974 national championship team and indirectly helped N.C. State win another basketball title in 1983.

Esposito, whom N.C. State baseball coach Elliott Avent affectionately called “the godfather of N.C. State athletics,” passed away early Tuesday morning in Montezuma. He was 86.
