After Saturday’s game, Chadwell stated that he was open to coaching football somewhere else if he had the opportunity.

“If I am led to go somewhere else, then I will go somewhere else,” Chadwell said. “That’s the way I always try to do it. I don’t go for money. I don’t go for anything but where I believe that I can impact people in a positive way. That’s important to me.”

Chadwell and Liberty University agreed to a seven-year deal of more than $4 million per year, the announcement reads.
