WITN-TV to Air ECU Press Conference

Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., East Carolina University Director of Athletics Terry Holland will address the media regarding the search for a new head football coach.

A source close to the university has told WITN-TV that Holland met with the juniors on the football team last week and assured the players that a new head coach would be named within ten days of end of the season.

Holland reportedly also told the players of three coaching candidates, one being former Auburn head coach Terry Bowden.

Bowden has been out of coaching since 1998 and is currently a college football analyst for ABC sports. While at Auburn, Bowden compiled a 47-16-1 record and led the Tigers to an undefeated season his first year on the job.

The source told WITN the other two possibilities mentioned were former Georgia head coach Jim Donnan and former Clemson and Arkansas head coach Danny Ford.
