The East Carolina Pirates are Big East bound for the football program as they look to get more respect and exposure for their program. The Pirates have always had a rather solid football program and as signing day concludes, things are looking solid yet again for East Carolina.
Ruffin McNeal is entering his fourth season as the head coach of the Pirates football program with a 19-19 (16-8 CUSA) record. It appears that non-conference play has put a hurt on McNeal, but maybe with a new era of Big East conference play, that will turn around.
