GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) East Carolina starting quarterback Gardner Minshew has withdrawn from school to deal with a family matter in his home state of Mississippi.
The school announced Minshew's decision in a news release Tuesday. Minshew earned a communication degree after the fall semester and coach Scottie Montgomery had designated him as the No. 1 QB entering the upcoming spring practices.
Montgomery said "the door will certainly remain open" for Minshew to possibly return.
