Stokes Leaves ECU

Former East Carolina University head basketball coach Ricky Stokes will not be staying at the university after all.

ECU athletic director Terry Holland says Stokes and the university agreed to terminate Stokes contract. This means that instead of Stokes taking the position as the associate athletics director of basketball, he will no longer be an employee of the university.

The school will make a one time payment to buy Stokes out of his contract.
