Holland's contract extended two years

GREENVILLE, NC   (Jan. 11, 2007)   —   Terry Holland, athletics director at East Carolina University, has agreed to a two-year extension of his contract, which now runs through 2011, and he has received a $36,000 raise, bringing his annual salary to $324,000.

The ECU Board of Trustees approved the contract amendments Jan 10. The amendments also change Holland’s title to Athletics Director and Executive Assistant to the Chancellor.

Chancellor Steve Ballard said, “I believe strongly in leadership and teamwork, and Terry Holland has been exemplary in both these areas. These changes reflect my complete satisfaction with his performance.”

Ballard added, “This extension will provide great stability for the Pirate Nation, and, over time, will make Coach Holland more available for special assignments.”

Those assignments will be focused on building relationships, enhancing the university’s national image through athletics, and providing advice on key problems and opportunities, Ballard said.

Holland said, “I want to be here as long as I can contribute and make a difference. I am very humbled by the fact that East Carolina wants me to stay.”
