New North Greenville University head football coach Jamey Chadwell will open a new era on the sidelines of Younts Stadium in Tigerville, SC Saturday, Aug. 29 when the Crusaders host Mars Hill College at 7:00 p.m.
Chadwell, who took over as head coach in February, had a very successful spring practice with his Crusader squad, and is anticipating a successful first season after serving as assistant head coach at Charleston Southern.
The 2009 NGU schedule is highlighted by a trip to Florence, Ala. take on perennial NCAA Division II national champion North Alabama Thursday, Oct. 8. The Lions, who reached the NCAA II national semi-finals last season, are now coached by former Auburn mentor Terry Bowden, the son of legendary Florida State coach Bobby Bowden. Kickoff is slated for 7:00 p.m.
Other highlights of the ’09 schedule include four home games and three games against South Atlantic Conference members Mars Hill, Wingate (Sept. 5) and Lenoir Rhyne (Sept. 19).
