Football notes:

Paul Jette
(Baylor SID)

Paul Jette is poised to reboard the Pirates ship. Expect the official announcement on July 1. After spending last season on the staff at Baylor, Jette will likely return to the defensive backfield coaching responsibilities he carried out at East Carolina in 1999 and 2000. Jette will take charge of a secondary that allowed the most passing yardage in Conference USA last season. Jette’s daughter Katharyn was so homesick in Waco for Greenville that the family established legal guardianship for her with the family of a friend so that she could return to Rose High. ...

Former Pirates in the Canadian Football League include quarterback Marcus Crandell of the Calgary Stampeders, quarterback Dan Gonzalez of the Montreal Alouettes, receiver Marcellus Harris of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and receiver Keith Stokes of Montreal.

Basketball notes:

The National Basketball Developmental League has expressed interest in Pirates guard Kenyatta Brown, who completed his eligibility in 2002. Another ECU senior guard, Brandon Hawkins, recently attended a tryout camp in Charlotte for European teams.

Baseball notes:

ECU athletics director Mike Hamrick spent some time with former Pirates baseball coach Keith LeClair on Tuesday and said he will value LeClair’s input in the hiring of a new baseball coach. The top candidates appear to be Coastal Carolina coach Gary Gilmore, Georgia Southern coach Rodney Hennon, Tennessee assistant Randy Mazey and Western Carolina coach Todd Raleigh. ... Conference USA has announced that its baseball coach of the year award will be renamed the Keith LeClair coach of the year award.
