Moglia hires first assistant in former NFL lineman Noble

Coastal Carolina head football coach Joe Moglia announced the first addition to his coaching staff Thursday, naming former NFL defensive lineman Brandon Noble assistant coach.

Noble comes to Coastal Carolina after one season working under Moglia as the defensive line coach with the Omaha Nighthawks, where he helped the squad lead the United Football League (UFL) in both sacks and tackles for loss. Noble will coach the defensive line for the Chanticleers as well as have duties with the special teams.

“I brought Brandon on my staff when I was head coach of the Stars and Stripes College All-Star team,” Moglia said. “I was very impressed with his knowledge and ultimately wanted him to be a part of my staff at Omaha. He was very successful playing this game at the highest level and has learned for some of the best minds in the game. Because of this, he has proven himself to be a player’s coach and will be a tremendous asset to our program.”

Prior to his time at Omaha, Noble spent four seasons (2006-08 and 2010) as an assistant coach at West Chester University, working with the linebackers and defensive line in his time with the Golden Rams.

Noble spent seven seasons in the NFL, including three with the Washington Redskins (2003-05) and four with the Dallas Cowboys (1999-2002). He was a three-year starter at defensive end for the Cowboys and received the NFL’s Ed Block Courage Award, voted upon by his Redskin teammates and given to the player who exemplifies a commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.

Noble originally signed as an undrafted free agent in 1997 with the San Francisco 49ers, making the practice squad for stints during the 1997 and ’98 seasons.

He was allocated to the Barcelona Dragons of NFL Europe by both the 49ers and Cowboys in 1998 and ‘99, making the All-NFL Europe team and helping Barcelona win the 1999 World Bowl Championship.

A three-year starter at Penn State, Noble was the Defensive MVP of the 1997 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, served as a team captain and played on the 1994 undefeated Rose Bowl squad. He earned second team All-Big Ten honors and also helped the Nittany Lions to the 1993 Blockbuster Bowl.

Noble is a 1998 graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Criminal Justice. He is married to the former Mary Kate Dougherty. The couple has three children: Connor (10), Grace (8) and Jackson (6).

  1. mark Gray says:

    Sounds like a good hire I hope they get Coastal rolling the haters should give them a chance.Coach Bennett was a solid coach and better man but certain people make him out to be Lombardi .People want to hate coach Moglia because he is rich he grew up poor and is a self made man and he did not fire Bennett.One of the reasons coach Bennett is loved is because he is such a good Christian he would not want the new coached judged..
