McConnell served as the interim head coach for the majority of the 2011-2012 season at ECU. The ‘interim’ tag was removed by the university on July 1, 2012.
The Tigers went 8-18 in 2013 and did not make the Great American Conference postseason tournament.
“We would like to thank coach McConnell for his service the past two years and wish him the best in his future endeavors,” said ECU Director of Athletics Jeff Williams. ”We are opening a national search for our next head coach, effective immediately.”
