CONWAY, S.C. (WBTW) — Tim Beck was named the new head football coach for Coastal Carolina University on Sunday, according to a news release, and university officials have planned a news conference for Monday afternoon to discuss his hiring and the departure of former coach Jamey Chadwell.

According to ESPN, Beck is expected to get a five-year contract that would pay him about $1 million each year. The contract included additional incentives for performance.

Beck has 35 years of coaching experience and has spent 12 years as an offensive coordinator at Nebraska, Ohio State, Texas and North Carolina State, the release reads.

He has helped lead North Carolina State to three-consecutive eight-plus win seasons, according to the release. He has also led the Wolfpack to three-straight bowl appearances. He has coached in a postseason bowl game each year since 2007.

“I have known Tim since my return to coaching 13 years ago at Nebraska,” CCU’s chair of athletics Joe Moglia said. “He is an excellent coach and coordinator, and has always had the best interest of his players, coaches, and school at heart. 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.”

Moglia also recognized former Chadwell for his commitment to the team over the years.

“I also want to thank Jamey [Chadwell] for the remarkable contribution he has made here at Coastal,” Moglia said in a statement. “I love him and his family, and wish him all the success and happiness as he moves on in his coaching career.”

Beck’s daughter, Haylie, was a volleyball player at CCU, so the university brings him some familiarity. Beck said is ready to become part of the Chanticleer family.

“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.”

In 2020, Beck was recognized as the nation’s 8th best recruiter by, the release reads. Beck is a three-time nominee for the notorious Broyles Award, an award given to the nation’s top assistant coach.
