Coastal Carolina hires Patenaude as offensive coordinator

Conway, SC (Sports Network) - Coastal Carolina first-year football coach Joe Moglia announced Thursday the hiring of Dave Patenaude as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Patenaude was Georgetown's offensive coordinator the past two years and has 21 years of coaching experience.

"His offensive philosophy matched my vision of having an up-tempo, perimeter attack that has the quarterback making plays with both his arm and legs," Moglia said. "I am looking forward to spring practice to see his plan executed."

Georgetown improved by four wins in each of Patenaude's seasons as offensive coordinator.

A 1990 graduate of Central Connecticut State, Patenaude was the head coach at Division II University of New Haven in 2002 and 2003. He also was offensive coordinator at Hofstra and assisted at Holy Cross, Columbia, Fordham, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy and Springfield (Mass.) College

Coastal Carolina was 7-4 this past season, including 3-3 in the Big South Conference.
