joe moglia press conference

Head football coach for CCU Joe Moglia spoke on his five-month medical sabbatical and the upcoming Coastal football season at a press conference Friday. 

The Coastal Carolina University football program took some heat when its early signing period lineup included zero student-athletes from the state of South Carolina.

The Chants more than made up for it Wednesday by signing seven players from the Palmetto State, including hometown product and Conway High linebacker Noah Freshley.
