“I think fiscal responsibility will be extremely important,” ECU Board of Trustees member Mark Copeland said, also echoing sentiments by fellow committee members Tim Martin (executive president of the Pirate Club) and Carl Rogers (former PC president) that the new AD must be able to reunite a fractured fan base. “We need someone who can bond with the season ticket holder who may not be a Pirate Club member, or with somebody who gives multi-million dollars. I think we need to treat every Pirate the same.

“I think we need a coach’s coach, somebody who supports our coaches but allows them to do their jobs without hovering on top of them so they can be effective,” Copeland said.

ECU baseball coach Cliff Godwin brings the perspective of one of those team leaders, but also that of a former ECU student-athlete.

First on his mind in developing an ideal candidate was fund-raising, but beyond that he wants someone in position to do what has been lacking since former AD Jeff Compher came to a buyout agreement with the university in March.

“Someone who is willing to make tough decisions and then be transparent with the decisions they make, whether the public necessarily agrees with it or not,” Godwin said.
