Cliff Godwin will remain in Greenville to coach the Pirates

Cliff Godwin has decided to stay in Greenville to remain the Pirates' head coach, killing any speculation that he might take the job at Alabama

Over the past couple of weeks, speculation has been stirring about in the ECU baseball program concerning the future of head coach Cliff Godwin

Godwin was offered the head coaching job at Alabama but turned it down to remain with East Carolina.

This season was one for the history books for the Pirates. East Carolina won their first super regional in school history and defeated the reigning national champion Virginia Cavaliers. 

The Pirates' fell just short of the eventual goal of playing in Omaha, however, with Godwin staying at ECU and the Pirates retaining a majority of their players for next season, East Carolina is poised to make another run for the championship next year. 

Over the past two seasons, Godwin has lead the Pirates to an outstanding record of 78-45-1.
