GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - ECU football activities are back underway after a COVID-19 cluster last month brought them to a halt for 12 days.

ECU head football coach Mike Houston said in Tuesday’s post-practice Zoom interview with the media that 23 players did not practice.

Assistant Athletics Director Tom McClellan says that the team was cleared to resume activities Tuesday.

It was back on August 20th that the university announced that the team had 10 positive cases of the virus.

On August 27th, ECU said that it would be postponing its September 12th season opener against Marshall.

The Pirates season opener is now set for September 26th against UCF.
