GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -Patrick Pinkney will be back for a sixth season at East Carolina.
School officials said Friday that the NCAA granted a request for an extra year for the quarterback. He missed all of 2005 while recovering from a shoulder injury and multiple surgeries.
Pinkney completed 61 percent of his passes last season for 2,675 yards and 13 touchdowns. His efficient play helped the Pirates upset Virginia Tech and West Virginia, and their Conference USA title was the program's first league championship since 1976.
The senior and son of former East Carolina defensive back Reggie Pinkney said he is looking forward ``to being in a position to help contribute to a new set of goals in 2009.''
