Brother Of ECU Athletic Director Thought Financial Aid Was OK

By  | 

The brother of East Carolina University's athletic director says he was uncomfortable getting financial aid from the athletic department but felt he had done nothing wrong.

A school auditor thought differently, saying a $25,000 aid package was "inappropriate" and amounted to special treatment when compared to other students working in the department.

Gregg Holland is the 51-year-old younger brother of ECU Athletic Director Terry Holland. The audit didn't name him as the money
recipient, referring only to a relative.

But he tells the News & Observer of Raleigh that he thought everything was out in the open, so he assumed the financial aid didn't violate any rules.

Holland is a business student at ECU. School officials say his brother terminated payments after the audit.
