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."
