Tigerville, SC – Jamey Chadwell, who led North Greenville University’s football program to the NCAA Division II national quarterfinals this past season, has resigned to accept the head coaching position at Delta State University in Cleveland, MS. The Statesmen defeated NGU 28-23 in the quarterfinals Dec. 3 in Cleveland.
North Greenville will begin an immediate search for a successor according to Director of Athletics Jan McDonald. “Coach Chadwell did a remarkable job bringing credibility to our football program, and we greatly appreciate his hard work over the last three seasons,” she said. “His contribution put us in the national spotlight, and he stayed true to the mission of North Greenville in bringing the message of Christ to many football fans around the nation.”
Chadwell led the Crusaders to an 11-3 record this past season and the Crusaders finished a school best #12 in the final AFCA/NCAA Division II national poll. NGU defeated every team in the South Atlantic Conference in the first year of the four-year scheduling alliance of which NGU is a part. Chadwell compiled a 22-14 record in three seasons, but went 20-6 the last two and won the 2010 National Christian Collegiate Athletic Association’s Victory Bowl with a win over Campbellsville (KY).
