The East Carolina Board of Trustees went into closed session shortly after roll-call today and media members were told that no ‘announcement concerning athletics’ would be coming out afterwards.

The BOT meeting was to hear updates regarding personnel and legal matters and take any related action. 

ECU Chancellor Cecil Staton has said that he wanted to name a new Director of Athletics for the school before the end of the football season, which led many to believe that this meeting was to do just that. 

Staton and several other BOT members were not present  at the meeting and were only available via telephone.
