Former Charleston Southern player Newland Isaac has returned to join the CSU football coaching staff, Buccaneers head coach Jamey Chadwell announced Friday.

Isaac, who was on Chadwell’s staff last season at Delta State and spent three seasons with him at North Greenville, will coach the running backs and tight ends.

Isaac was a four-year letterman under former head coach Jay Mills at CSU. The Greer native was a former walk-on who worked his way to a scholarship at wide receiver. He helped CSU capture the 2005 Big South title, the first in its history.

Isaac coached running backs at Delta State last season, guiding a group which combined to average almost 200 rushing yards per game and nearly 5.0 yards per carry.
