North Greenville averaged 40.1 points and 434.1 yards of total offense per game this season with its spread option attack. The Crusaders went 11-3 and reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II playoffs — where, ironically, they were ousted by Delta State.

Chadwell has also been an assistant coach at Charleston Southern and East Tennessee State. He played quarterback in college at ETSU.

Chadwell will replace Ron Roberts, who resigned Dec. 19 to take the head coaching job at Southeastern Louisiana.
