ECU Press Release
GREENVILLE, N.C. - East Carolina senior outside receiver Cam Worthy has been suspended for two games as a result of a school student code of conduct violation.
The disciplinary action, which was administered by ECU's Office of Rights and Responsibilities during a review hearing prior to the Pirates' game against North Carolina, stemmed from a late summer verbal disagreement between Worthy and another male student on campus.
Fifth-year head football coach Ruffin McNeill was notified of the suspension, which includes all school activities through Oct. 4, by East Carolina University's Student Affairs division.
"Since I arrived at ECU we have always had a strong disciplinary response to any actions by our players," McNeill said. "Cam is an outstanding young man with an exemplary record as a student and representative of our football program. His family has been involved and fully supportive throughout this process as has our entire football family."
Worthy, from Blair, S.C., currently leads the Pirates with 302 receiving yards on 11 receptions through the first three games.
