Coastal Carolina has officially announced the hiring of NC State OC Tim Beck as the Chanticleers’ new head football coach. Beck has been in Raleigh for the last three seasons, following stints at Texas, Ohio State, Nebraska and Kansas.
“I have known Tim since my return to coaching 13 years ago at Nebraska. He is an excellent coach and coordinator, and has always had the best interest of his players, coaches, and school at heart,” AD Joe Moglia said in the release. “I take a lot of pride in what our program has accomplished in the last 10 years. Tim will do a great job of building on that.”
This is the first collegiate head coaching job for Beck, a long-time FBS staffer who attended famed Cardinal Mooney HS in Youngstown, Ohio. He has been the head coach at the high school level in Texas and Arizona, but has been working as a Power 5 offensive coordinator for the last twelve years.
“I could not be more excited to be the Head Football Coach at Coastal Carolina University. The complete alignment between Dr. Benson, Joe Moglia, and Matt Hogue has helped establish a championship program that is a tremendous fit for me and my family,” Beck said. “I fully embrace the expectations for how we will run this program each and every day. Coastal is a special place with special people. We are humbled and honored to become a part of the Chanticleer family and the Conway community.”
Coastal Carolina became one of the better Group of 5 program over the last several years under previous head coach Jamey Chadwell (now at Liberty), having moved up from the FCS in 2016. The Chants are playing East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl on 12/27, where they will be led by interim head coach Chad Staggs.
