GREENVILLE, N.C. -- What a week it was for former James Madison Coach Mike Houston!

It began with rumors swirling that he was the lead candidate for the Charlotte 49ers job only to have that offer rescinded once ECU opened their head football coach position.

On Tuesday, less than 24 hours after Jon Gilber was introduced as the the program's newest Athletic Director, he formally introduced Houston as ECU's new football coach.

Houston comes to Greenville after taking JMU to multiple national championship games on the FCS level while winning one national title with the Dukes.
