He spent the 2011 season serving as the assistant director of the Mountaineers Strength and Conditioning program upon returning to Appalachian State.

Cardwell found his way to the field again in 2012, resuming his role working with the tight ends. Cardwell was a walk on at Appalachian State in 2003, quickly making a name for himself as he finished his career as a team Co-Captain and three-time national champion.
