Coastal Carolina’s search for a new head football coach took all of ten days. According to sources, the school will introduce 61 year old Joe Moglia as the replacement for David Bennett at an 11:00 AM news conference at the football field house.
Moglia spent this past season as the head coach of the Omaha (NE) Nighthawks of the United Football League. Moglia also is a billionaire. He is the current chairman and former CEO of TD Ameritrade. According to Forbes.com, Moglia’s 2009 compensation was $9,936,460.00.
But Moglia also has a lot of football in his background. He was a coach for 16 years on both the high school and college level, including serving as defensive coordinator at Dartmourth, before entering the financial world.
In 2008, he decided he wanted to return to coaching and volunteered on the Nebraska staff under Bo Pelini. He then went to the UFL, first with the Virginia franchise and then Omaha.
