Charleston Southern will announce former assistant Jamey Chadwell as its new head football coach at a press conference today at 1 p.m.

Chadwell, who just completed his first season as the head coach at Delta State, served under former head coach Jay Mills from 2004-08. He left CSU for his first head coaching job at North Greenville, leading the Crusaders to a 22-14 record over three seasons.

Chadwell coached receivers for two seasons and was promoted to assistant head coach in 2006 at CSU. He also served as the program’s recruiting coordinator. Chadwell helped guide CSU to the 2005 Big South championship and the Bucs won 28 games during his five seasons on the staff.

Delta State, a perennial Division II playoff participant, finished 3-7 in Chadwell’s only season as head coach.

CSU’s head coaching position became available two weeks ago when Mills retired from coaching after 10 seasons at the helm.

Chadwell, 35, played at East Tennessee State University (1995-99) and was a two-year starter at quarterback.
