Lincoln Riley to stay at ECU

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

There is big news from East Carolina today. The Pirates Offensive Coordinator, Lincoln Riley, will stay on at ECU. Riley's name had been linked to openings at Notre Dame and North Carolina.

Sources at East Carolina have said the school was working on a new two year contract for Riley. The official word may come later this week, but sources say Riley is happy with the deal and will stay on with the Pirates. That's great news to lead into a big recruiting weekend.

WNCT's Brian Bailey will have more on this developing story on 9 On Your Side at 6!
