Interim Head Coach at East Carolina steps down

East Carolina interim head women’s basketball coach Chad Killinger has stepped down citing health concerns. He became the interim head coach for the Pirates back on October 17th, following the resignation of Heather Macy. Assistant coach Nicole Mealing will lead the team for the rest of the season.

ECU Athletic Director Jon Gilbert confirmed the move in a statement that said Killinger will “take a leave of absence to address a non-life threatening health issue following a recent medical evaluation,”

The Pirates are currently 9-2 on the season, and will travel to Duke on Friday.
