Greg Hudson Leaving ECU For FSU

Media outlets and websites based out of Tallahassee, Florida are reporting that ECU defensive coordinator Greg Hudson has signed a contract to become the new linebackers coach at Florida State University under new head coach Jimbo Fisher, However, WITN has learned that while Hudson has agreed in principle to become a Seminole, no contract has been signed.

Hudson is also expected to report to Memphis, Tennessee following the Christmas break to coach the Pirates in the upcoming Liberty Bowl against Arkansas.

Hudson's defense has been the top defense in Conference USA for each of the past four years in either yards given up or points allowed.

Florida State's defense was one of the worst in the nation this year and Hudson will be expected to turn that unit around quickly.

    Why go to FSU as a #2 Defensive Backs coach. Stay at ECU and go to FSU when you can be the Defensive Coordinator and not a second level position. You deserve more than being a backs coach. Not many who have left ECU have really had successful tenures at other schools.

    Darren: HAve you been living under a rock for the last 7 years? It is time for the reigns to be handed over to a new driver. Fisher may not be the one to replace Coach Bowden, but it is for sure time for him to retire. And I'll be glad to send you a Miami/Gator plate if you promise not to darn a Seminole t-shirt...LOL

    Note to Greg Hudson: You are one stupid sell out for going to that thug school out of Florida State to be something less than a defensive coordinator. I hope Florida State goes 0-12 next season and at least Jimbo gets fired. FSU should have never let Coach Bowden leave in the first place. Looks like if I ever go to Talahassee, then I'll be glad to have a sign that has house divided, half Florida Gators and half Miami Hurricanes. Get ready to coach a bunch of Criminoles.

    I like coach Hud and for all purposes he made a niche for himself at ECU. I personally feel this was a bad more for coach Hud and he will be fired after lack of production at FSU its just how the ACC does business. I wish him luck anyways and I hope he does well but I wont be surprised when he is let go.

    Good luck Coach Hudson. Thanks for the CUSA championships. I hope you can bring FSU back to glory.

    I wish him the best, and hope he will take Holland and Hotz with him. And just for good measure . . . the President of the college . . . whatever his name is. The only great names at ECU that truly come to mind are Dr. Leo Jenkins and Coach Stasavich. That's when we really had a college program and a viable football team . . . not the biggest but certainly the best! Merry Christmas!!
