                 === East Carolina gives McNeill extension ===
 Greenville,  NC (Sports  Network) - East Carolina University has extended head
 football coach Ruffin McNeill's contract through the 2017 season.
 The  three-year  extension provides  a  total  compensation package  of  $1.15
 million with the possibility of earning incentives.
 McNeill's existing five-year contract was set to expire after the 2014 season,
 but has been extended to June 30, 2018.
 McNeill  was named  East Carolina's 20th head football coach on Jan. 21, 2010.
 In  his  three years as  head coach,  McNeill has led  the Pirates to two bowl
 appearances with a combined 11-4 divisional record. The Pirates have ranked in
 the Conference USA East Division's top three during McNeill's tenure.
 "As  a former  student-athlete in  our  football program,  he understands  the
 expectations  and  passion of  our fan  base," ECU  Director of Athletics Jeff
 Compher  added. "I  am  extremely happy  for Coach  McNeill,  his family,  our
 assistant  coaches,  and most  of all for  our student-athletes. This contract
 extension  is  well-deserved and signifies  an outstanding commitment to Coach
 McNeill and his continued leadership of our football program."
 The 54-year-old head coach previously served on the Texas Tech defensive staff
 for 10 years from 2000 to 2009.
