The Scoop on Jamey Chadwell to Charleston Southern

We have learned that Delta State (D-II - MS) head coach Jamey Chadwell has been hired to the same position at Charleston Southern, a South Carolina-based FCS school that competes in the Big South Conference.

Chadwell, 35, spent one season at Delta State and before that spent three seasons as the head coach at North Greenville (D-II) in Tigerville, S.C. At North Greenville, Chadwell inherited a program that had beaten just five Division II opponents in school history and went 22-14 in his three seasons, including a 20-6 mark over his final two campaigns and an appearance in the Division II Quarterfinals. 

Chadwell, who played at East Tennessee State and coached there from 2000-03, returns to Charleston Southern, where he was an offensive assistant and recruiting coordinator from 2004-08, helping the Bucs win the 2005 Big South title. 

In our opinion, this is a great move for both parties. Chadwell moves back to a place he experienced great success previously, and Charleston Southern gets a head coach that is a proven winner and is well-liked throughout the coaching community.
