East Carolina football coach Skip Holtz turned down Cincinnati in 2007. Pirates fans are hoping history will repeat itself.
Cincinnati is the latest school to eye Holtz – it was Kansas last week – and the coach could have another list of pros and cons to weigh.
Holtz elected to stay at ECU in 2007, bypassing a jump to the Big East, a Bowl Championship Series conference. The Bearcats ended up with Central Michigan’s Brian Kelly.
