Coach: Son-in-law to be gets thumbs-up

Ruffin McNeill always refers to his football players as his sons, but when he comes back from a trip to Jamaica this weekend, the East Carolina head coach will have taken on a different kind of son — the kind with “in-law” at the end.

While the extended family of his Pirate football team is under the watchful eye of strength and conditioning coach Jeff Connors for the balance of the summer, the fourth-year ECU football coach is on his way to the Caribbean to watch his oldest daughter, Renata, tie the knot.


“It’s not too much of a vacation, but it’s my first wedding (for one of his children) so I’m a little nervous,” McNeill said of the trip, which he said will be a quick one that will have him back in his office by Monday.

Happy for coach but why is this a major

news headline DR? You must be desperate for news but want do investigative reporting. Example, why no reports on code violation of the code violation resulting in the death of an ECU student, investigation of drivers who caused death of innocent victims such as recent on Arlington? Get my drift DR?
