Coach McNeill Talks With WITN About His Weight Loss Surgery

ECU head football coach Ruffin McNeill says he has already lost 45 pounds since his weight loss surgery on January 13th.

McNeill says, "This is a life change, it's not a phase, or a two year change or a three year change. I made a life decision."

McNeill's surgery was necessary so that he can have hip replacement surgery following the spring football game.

McNeill says, "I want to be here for my family, for my girls and they want me here for them too. I want to be here for my boys, I have a 120 boys to take care of too, I'm very conscious of those guys."

McNeill says when fans see him come the first game of the season, he hopes he'll be walking better and running down the ref's a lot quicker.
