ECU extends contract of AD Holland through 2014

Posted February 26, 2010

The East Carolina University Board of Trustees, in an unanimous vote Friday, approved a three-year extension of athletics director Terry Holland’s contract until Dec. 31, 2014.

 

The contract, which was originally set to expire in 2011, will continue Holland’s annual salary at $356,400.

 

ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard noted that none of his senior administrators are receiving raises in the current budget climate.

 

Holland, who was appointed to his position in 2004, has overseen athletics department improvements such as higher academic achievement by student-athletes, increased attendance at football games and enhanced facilities.

 

The Board of Trustees also officially approved the five-year contract of head football coach Ruffin McNeill during the session. The Board's Executive Committee had endorsed a memorandum of understanding with McNeill during a conference call on his hiring date of Jan. 21.

    A smart man. One of the best that's ever taken an AD position!

    I hope he finds us a good replacement when its his time to retire. Just give Mack some time with the basketball team its only his third year, I think he will get us to a .500 team.

    Terry has done a great job in strengthening our athletic program. We'll see how his decision to hire Ruffin goes. I like him for his character, but I am not sold on him as a coach based on some of the coaches he got rid of (namely Junior Smith and Shank) and then replaced with 24 and 26 year old rookie coaches. Terry essentially took what was left. NC State did that with Sidney Lowe in basketball and they are suffering for it by just being a .500 team.

    Our basketball program is the only thing that has gotten worse since his arrival. We are averaging around 20 losses a year. I hope that he can stop the hemoraging at some point.

    the pirate fans love and appreciate this man. he does seem to be good at what he does; now, if only he could work on that basketball team, ha.

    Excellent AD, I would like to see him in Raleigh.

    That will take him to 71 years old. Considering he came out of retirement to take this job, I wouldn't be surprised if this is his last contract.

    Holland has done a darn good job there. Making some huge bucks too.
