Liberty, Jamey Chadwell agree to 7-year deal

Liberty is hiring Jamey Chadwell as its new manager, with Chadwell agreeing to a seven-year deal averaging more than $4 million a year, sources told ESPN. An announcement is expected later Sunday morning.

Chadwell has been one of the sport’s top coaches for the past three years, winning 31-6 at Coastal Carolina. Overall, Chadwell is 39-22 in five years there. He has experience as a head coach at Charleston Southern, Delta State and North Greenville.

Coastal Carolina lost 45-26 to Troy on Saturday in the Sun Belt title game, Chadwell’s final game as Chanticleers coach. Coastal Carolina has targeted NC State offensive coordinator Tim Beck as their new head coach, sources said.

In 2020, Coastal Carolina started 11-0 — including a high-profile win over No. 8 BYU — and climbed into the top 10 in the Associated Press poll. Chadwell won 11 National Coach of the Year awards that year as Coastal became one of the sport’s greatest stories.

Chadwell’s offense, centered around a running quarterback, has proven to be one of the most innovative in the game.

The Liberty job went open after trainer Hugh Freeze left for Auburn. Liberty had just agreed to pay Freeze an average of $5 million a year in a new contract signed before he left.

Liberty is poised to join Conference USA next season, and the Liberty program is recognized as the most resourced in the league. Liberty has only been a full-time FBS program for five years. Freeze went 34-15 in his four years there.
