GREENVILLE, N.C. – The East Carolina University Board of Trustees formally approved
Women’s Basketball Head Coach Heather Macy’s contract Thursday. The five-year
agreement will run through the 2014-15 season.

Macy(Greensboro College) was named the 10th head coach in program history April 30, officially ending a three-year affiliation with Francis Marion University. She led the Patriots to three-consecutive NCAA Tournament berths and two Peach Belt Conference
regular-season titles.

The Hamptonville, N.C., native owns a career record of 115-39 and her Francis Marion
teams led the nation in scoring offense and steals per game from 2007-09. As a
result, she was named Peach Belt Coach-of-the-Year for those seasons.

Macy arrived at Francis Marion after serving two years as head coach at Pfeiffer
University in Misenheimer, N.C. In 2006-07, she took the Falcons to a 26-5 record,
the Carolina-Virginia Athletics Conference regular-season and tournament
championships and an appearance in the NCAA Division II Tournament. The team’s
record represented the fourth-best turnaround in Division II that campaign and Macy
was named the conference’s coach-of-the-year.

Her coaching resume also includes stints as an assistant coach at the University of
Maryland Baltimore County and High Point University, as well as a pair of Division
II schools – Lenoir-Rhyne College and Catawba College. In her six seasons as an
assistant, Macy helped her teams to an 84-60 record.
