Press Conference Sheds No Light On ECU Coaching Change

A press conference by the East Carolina University Athletic Department Tuesday shed no light on the suspension with pay of head baseball coach Randy Mazey.

At the press conference on the Greenville campus, ECU Athletic Director Terry Holland introduced Billy Godwin, an assistant coach who take over head coaching duties for the rest of this school year, including the entire 2006 season. Godwin made a short statement and took questions from reporters. No mention was made by ECU officials of Randy Mazey or his suspension, nor would they answer questions on the matter.

Mazey was suspended with pay Monday. No reason was given for the suspension. Holland said a national search for Mazey's permanent replacement will begin at the end of the school year.
