Three of Head Pirate Football Coach Ruffin McNeill's assistant coaches are going to the west coast.
Antonio Huffman, Dennis Simmons and Clay McGuire are leaving East Carolina for Washington State. Jeff Charles, the Voice of the Pirates, reported the departures on WITN News at Sunrise on Tuesday.
The coaches who served under McNeill are taking jobs with their former boss, Mike Leach, who used to be the head coach at Texas Tech.
Huffman was the director of football operations at ECU. Charles called Huffman "Ruff's right-hand man." McGuire was the running backs coach and special teams coordinator. Simmons was the outside wide receivers coach.
