What did you expect him to say????

Seriously? The guy had coached one season. He wasn't going to through him under the bus after one season. It does no good whatsoever for anyone above the coach (AD, chancellor, BOT member, etc.) to question their ability publically if they are about to start a new season in their capacity as coach. Nothing would have been worse than for a BOT member, AD, etc. to start questioning the coach after one season when they are about to start practice for the next season.

I have had concerns about Montgomery since mid-season last year and they have only been confirmed to date in my opinion. However, I'm not in a position of authority at ECU. It does ECU no good whatsoever for people in authority to question the ability of the HC when they are in the middle of recruiting and preparing for the next season.

Montgomery is going to be back for the 2018 football season. Period. End of story. Everything those above the coach are doing and saying publically should be geared toward trying to help him be successful in 2018. If things fall apart again, then it's fine to express concerns publically. Until then, the administration of ECU should be on the same page supporting the coach and players. Who wants to start the football season with BOT members not supporting the coach?

Can't believe you are surprised or have any concerns over a BOT member saying he's a big believer in the football coach who's only been there one season and is literally days away from starting practice for the new football season.
