Coastal Carolina head football coach Joe Moglia has completed his 2018 football coaching staff with the hiring of Shawn Howe as defensive line coach.
Howe spent the last three seasons as the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator at NCAA Division II Dixie State University. Last season, Howe’s defense ranked 21st in the nation in fewest passing yards allowed (168.2 per game) and picked off 13 passes.
He was previously the defensive line coach at Humboldt State for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, where his 2014 unit led the nation in sacks and he coached one All-American and six all-conference performers.
Howe also worked with the Southern California program for two seasons – including the 2012 season with current CCU defensive coordinator Marvin Sanders – as a defensive assistant in 2011 and graduate assistant working with the defensive line in 2012.
Never miss a local story.
He has also held positions at Gardner-Webb, Tennessee, Memphis, N.C. State and his alma mater, Rocky Mountain College, from which he graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in physical education and health.
Recently, Moglia added Newland Isaac, who has coached alongside CCU associate head coach and offensive coordinator Jamey Chadwell for eight years, as a running backs coach. He fills an opening on the staff left by Nick Jones, who recently accepted a job as assistant coach at Air Force Academy.
