Agreed, but he was not an old man just looked old :) early 50's when he

got to ECU. I think Ruff was the rare, rare dude who would have stayed at ECU unless he just coached lights out and had ridiculous money thrown at him. Nobody is staying if they kill it and the whole nation is after them. I guess they could but they would be foolish to turn down $30-$40 million guaranteed contract . I don't see ECU having the bank to throw $2.5 million at a HC and there is a good chance if a HC is killing it that we are probably going to lose some assistant coaches even if the HC stays. Until we get to the point where we can pay an OC or DC $750k we will lose them every time they are good.

Bottom line is Coaching Football is a business and these Coaches know damn well the fans can turn on you in a second. Most of us loved Ruff but if he had two or three 3-9 season we would have given him a Bus ticket to Lumberton
