Holland was also AD at Davidson

GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Terry Holland, the former basketball
coach and athletic director at Virginia, has been hired by East
Carolina as its athletics director.

Holland, who agreed to a 5-year contract, will begin work Oct.
1, chancellor Steve Ballard said Tuesday.

Holland coached the Cavaliers from 1974-90 and is the winningest
coach in school history with a 326-173 record. He twice reached the
Final Four and coached three-time national player of the year Ralph
Sampson.

After stepping down as coach in 1990, he became athletics
director at Davidson, his alma mater. He returned to Virginia as
athletics director five years later, serving until 2001 and
overseeing the $86 million expansion of the university's football
stadium.

He later became a special assistant to the university president,
where he helped secure the creation of a new basketball arena.

Nick Floyd, the senior associate athletics director, served as
interim athletics director at East Carolina since Mike Hamrick
resigned last August to become AD at UNLV. Ballard said Floyd has
agreed to a new 5-year contract to remain at East Carolina.
