Former Alabama head coach and current Jacksonville Jaguars assistant coach, Mike Shula, has been rumored to be the leading candidate to replace Skip Holtz at East Carolina. We have learned that Ruffin McNeill is the leading candidate at this hour. Tom McClellan, Assistant Athletics Director/Media Relations for East Carolina University, has informed The Sports Times Network that "Mike Shula is not a candidate." McClellan added, "Don't put the horse ahead of the cart, Mike Shula is not on our radar." The Sports Times Network will be updating the head coaching search periodically in Greenville, North carolina.
