CONWAY – After yet another record-setting season, the Coastal Carolina football program added another item to its impressive 2014 resume by finishing a program-best fifth in both The Sports Network Poll and Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Coaches Poll.


This is the second consecutive season head coach Joe Moglia has led the Chanticleers to a consensus top 10 finish as the program finished seventh in both of last year's polls. The Chanticleers finished 2012 – Moglia's first season at CCU – 25th in both polls. Coastal is one of just five programs to finish among the FCS top 10 in both 2013 and 2014 joining North Dakota State (#1 in 2013 and  #1 in 2014), Eastern Washington (#3 and #4), New Hampshire (#5 and #3) and Jacksonville State (#10 and #9).

Coastal Carolina was one of three FCS teams ranked #1 in the nation in 2014, a spot it held for the final two weeks of the regular season, and was ranked among the nation's top six the entire season.

The Chanticleers won a Big South title for the third consecutive season, tied its own Big South-record from last season with 12 wins, was a national seed to the NCAA Division I Championship, earned a first-round bye for the NCAA Division I Championship and reached the NCAA Division I quarterfinal for the second consecutive season, falling to eventual national champion North Dakota State both times. Coastal ranked fourth in the FCS in winning percentage (.875) posting a 12-2 record with its two losses coming by a combined eight points – a one-point loss to #17 Liberty and a seven-point loss at #1 North Dakota State.
