CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina University head football coach Joe Moglia is stepping down after seven seasons. The announcement came during a Friday afternoon news conference. Offensive coordinator Jamey Caldwell will be promoted to head coach.
“To my players and staff, family and friends, and all of you who have been part of Coastal Carolina football, I can’t thank you enough for all the love, support and dedication that you have given to me, my family and the Coastal Carolina football family over the last seven years,” Moglia said in a statement.
Moglia will stay on for the duration of his contract, which runs through June 2021, as chairman of athletics and will still have executive authority for football. Chadwell will report to him, while he will report to CCU President Dr. David DeCenzo.
In July 2017 Moglia announced he would take a five-month medical sabbatical to fight an allergic reaction. Caldwell served as interim coach in Moglia’s absence, finishing 3-9.
