CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) - Coastal Carolina moved quickly to fill its head coaching vacancy after the departure of Jamey Chadwell.

The university announced Sunday it has hired former North Carolina State offensive coordinator Tim Beck as the fourth permanent head coaching the program’s history. News of Beck’s hire was first reported by ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

Beck was formally introduced at a press conference on Monday.

“Every move and every decision I’ve made has been for this moment,” Beck said after being introduced by CCU President Michael T. Benson and Executive Director of Football Joe Moglia. “I’ve been waiting for this moment for 30 years.”

Beck was hired at NC State in 2020, spending two years as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Wolfpack. He was also a nominee for the Broyles Award in 2020, which is awarded to the nation’s top assistant coach.

Previous stops for Beck have included Texas, Ohio State, Nebraska and Kansas.

Current CCU defensive coordinator Chad Staggs will serve as the interim head coach for the Chanticleers’ upcoming bowl game on Dec. 27 against East Carolina.
