Greenville, NC (Sports Network) - East Carolina football announced on Thursday
that it has suspended sophomore nose tackle Terry Williams indefinitely
following a drug-related arrest.
"I have suspended Terry as a result of a poor decision and conduct that is
certainly not in line with the standards we have in place at East Carolina,"
head coach Ruffin McNeill said. "Representing this university and playing in
our program is a privilege and everyone will be held accountable to earn that
right. Naturally, I'm disappointed and frustrated by this development, but we
will continue to mentor and guide our players to the best of our ability,
although it isn't always an exact process."
Williams was arraigned Wednesday night by the Simpson, North Carolina police
department on charges of marijuana possession with intent to sell.
The native of Georgia finished the 2011 season with 31 tackles, two forced
fumbles and one recovery in 11 games.
