ECU Makes A Move

ECU got a major coup,
getting UVa's Terry Holland to take over as athletic director.

Holland's reputation is solid, though we have to stop and think about who he
actually hired. Jeff Jones? Was he A.D. then?

Hires are one thing, administrative skills are another. We're guessing he
scores pretty well in that department. Plus it's generally forgotten that
he's a native of Eastern N.C. (Clinton), and his comments upon being hired
suggest he's never forgotten where he came from. We can't find the exact
quote, but basically he said that his goal was to make ECU so successful that
athletes from Down East would never feel they had to leave in order to find
academic and athletic success.
