As we reported previously, Liberty Athletic Director is in serious consideration to be Terry Holland’s replacement at East Carolina. Barber has been named one of three early leaders along with Nick Floyd and Jeff Compher to replace Holland as East Carolina’s Athletic Director according to Denny O’Brien.

Nick Floyd, Jeff Barber, and Jeff Compher are the early leaders to replace Terry Holland as #ECU AD.

Floyd and Barber have obvious ties to #ECU. Compher spent a lot of time at #NCState and hired Dave Doeren at #NIU.
