Friday’s stop on the Palmetto Pigskin Tour was at Coastal Carolina where third year coach Joe Moglia is proving he knows how to do more than turn a dollar into many dollars. Moglia’s position as chairman of the board for TD Ameritrade is well known. His reputation as a coach is also beginning to spread.
Moglia took the Chanticleers to the third round of the FCS playoffs last season wining a school record 12 games along the way. He has many pieces of that team returning led by Alex Ross at quarterback and Quinn Backus at linebacker.
The Chants will open the season ranked as high as #7 in the pre-season FCS polls. That first game will be August 30th at The Citadel. The home opener is September 13th against SC State. And the Big South opener will be October 11th at Presbyterian.
