Petition to restore ECU’s McNeil gets close to 5,000 signatures

Former ECU coach Ruffin McNeill (WNCT)

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – An online petition is close to meeting its goal of getting 5,000 supporters to hopefully bring back Ruffin McNeill and to fire ECU Athletic Director Jeff Compher.

The petition on Change.Org was published on Saturday. This happened just one day after Compher announced he fired McNeill as head football coach.

On Monday, it had nearly 4,500 supporters.

Compher said on Friday his decision came from the team not meeting expectations.

WNCT brought this petition to ECU’s attention and the school said it had no comment.
