Online sports gambling handicappers will have a new head man to evaluate at East Carolina as Ruffin McNeill was named head coach for the 2010 sports gambling online season. McNeill has spent the last ten online sports gambling seasons as a defensive assistant at Texas Tech.
He has served as defensive coordinator with the Red Raiders over the past three sports gambling online seasons and was the interim coach for Tech in their gambling sports bowl win over Michigan State after head coach Mike Leach was fired prior to the game.
McNeill has gained a lot of online sports gambling respect and credibility through the years for the way he improved the Texas Tech defense and they way he conducted himself after the Leach firing.
McNeill got the East Carolina job after previous head coach Skip Holtz bolted for the South Florida job after the Bulls fired long time head coach Jim Leavitt. There is a bit of online sports gambling irony in that both Leach and Leavitt were fired for alleged abuse of players.
McNeill would seem to be a good online sports gambling fit at East Carolina as he is from the area and an alumnus. He made it clear that he has no further online sports gambling coaching aspirations beyond his alma mater. “This is my destination job,” said McNeill.
“Let me get that out front right now. This is not a stepping stone hop for Ruff. This is where I want to be until you tow me away from here. You’ll have to drag me away.” East Carolina has had a lot of online sports gambling success recently under Holtz as they have won back to back Conference USA titles.
The Pirates had an online sports gambling record of 9-5 straight up and 7-6 against the spread in 2009. McNeill is expected to earn $1 million per year based on incentives for season ticket sales, academics, and win loss results.
