Lincoln Riley wasn't immediately sold on East Carolina, at least not from a distance.

“I got lucky being able to coach in a great conference, the Big 12, for seven years,” said Riley, who left his job as a football assistant at Texas Tech after the 2009 season to join new ECU head coach Ruffin McNeill. “I got to play at Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, all that, and when I first took this job, I had a preconceived notion. Honestly, I didn't know that East Carolina was in Greenville. I didn't know where it was.”
