McNeill, Fedora open week with press conferences

Posted: Updated:

East Carolina head coach Ruffin McNeill and North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora each med the media today in their respective cities to preview this weekend's game between the Pirates and the Tar Heels.

In Greenville, McNeill told the area media that he wished this game was on the schedule each year. He acknowledged that the Tar Heels have had the upper hand of late, but he's hoping to change things this week.

In Chapel Hill, Fedora talked about the importance of the interest in in-state rivalries. Fedora has a 3-2 overall record against East Carolina as a head coach at Southern Miss and UNC.

North Carolina leads the all-time series with East Carolina 12-2-1. The Tar Heels have also won the last four games in the series.

East Carolina's last win against the Tar Heels came in Greenville in 2007.
