Moglia takes a sabbatical

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Coastal Carolina head football coach Joe Moglia is taking a leave of absence. He will miss the next five months due to doctors orders.

Moglia said the matter is “temporary,” yet he will not coach the 2017 season. Jamey Chadwell, the associate head coach and offensive coordinator, will be the interim head coach for this season.

The 68-year-old has been the Coastal Carolina head coach since the 2012 season. Since taking over, he has a 51-15 record.

Moglia is dealing with bronchial asthmatic reaction to allergies. This disease causes inflammation in the lungs, which results in difficultly breathing.

He says he has been dealing with the problem for the past three-years. He wants to get it fixed, but hasn’t yet.

“For three years now, I have had bronchial asthmatic reaction to allergies, which causes inflammation around my lungs,” he said. “The inflammation restricts the lungs, which could create a serious breathing problem.

“I want to be clear: I do not have a disease and I am in no danger, but I do need to get this addressed. Dr. David DeCenzo, the president of CCU, has offered me a medical sabbatical for the next five months, which I’m going to take. The doctors and I are confident that this will take care of the problem, and I will be 100% ready to go by the end of the season.”

Chadwell is 60-35 as a college head coach. He was 35-14 in four season with the Charleston Southern Buccaneers. He was also 22-14 in three seasons with the North Greenville Crusaders and 3-7 with the Delta State Statesman.
