New information regarding ECU’s decision to fire Ruffin McNeill – with Brian North and Bryan Hanks

Over the course of a sprawling 72-minute podcast, WCTI’s Brian North divulges what his sources say are the real reasons  Ruffin McNeill was fired by ECU and which coaches were on the short list to replace him.

The show begins with Free Press Editor Bryan Hanks taking a short drum lesson. From there things get a bit out of hand.
