CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Charleston Southern's head football coach, Jamey Chadwell, will not be leaving Charleston Southern for Tennessee, he says.
Chadwell, who just finished his 4th season at CSU, was being considered for an opening at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. That job became available on Wednesday when Russ Huesman left the Mocs to take the head coaching job at Richmond.
Chadwell, a Tennessee native who played collegiately at East Tennessee State, told Live 5 that he was not getting the job.
In just four seasons, Chadwell has already left his mark on the CSU program leading the team to 35 wins, 2 Big South championships and 2 trips to the FCS playoffs. He's also been named Big South Coach of the Year three times.
