CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) - A former Coastal Carolina football great is getting another shot at the professional level.

Former Chanticleer CJ Marable was selected by the Birmingham Stallions in the 28th round of the USFL draft on Wednesday.

Marable signed with the NFL’s Chicago Bears following the 2021 NFL Draft but was waived prior to the season. He ended his career at Coastal second on the program’s all-time rushing list, and fourth on both rushing touchdown and total touchdown lists.

The USFL, a revival of the football league of the same name that ran from 1982-1986, will begin its season on April 16.
