Coastal Completes Football Staff with Hiring of Renato Diaz

Diaz will serve as the Chanticleer wide receivers coach

George Glenn is in his third season as the chief of staff and director of football operations. His duties include organizing the daily operations of the football program, such as practice schedules, travel schedules and the daily administrative duties.

Glenn came to Coastal after spending the 2011 season as chief of staff for the Omaha Nighthawks for Joe Moglia.

Glenn brought over 30 years of football experience to Coastal Carolina both as a high school head coach as well as being co-founder and camp director of the Blue Chip Football Camp, held annually in Delaware since 1976.

Glenn was both athletic director and head football coach at Cape Henlopen (Del.) High School. Prior to that, he was head coach at Salesianum (Del.) School for 21 years.

He is the winningest head football coach in the history of Salesianum School, chalking up 119 victories from 1976 to 1992. Salesianum won the Delaware Division I state championship in 1986, when he was named Delaware Football Coach of the Year. Salesianum additionally reached the state championship in 1980, '87, '88 and '92, while reaching the semifinals in 1981, '83, '84 and '90. Prior to taking over as head coach, Glenn was offensive coordinator at Salesianum from 1972-75, helping the program win a state title in 1972.

Glenn won another 25 games in four seasons - posting at least six wins each season - as head coach at Cape Henlopen High School, taking over a program that was just 1-9 prior to his arrival.

At the time he finished his 21-year Delaware head coaching career, Glenn was the second-winningest head football coach in state history. In addition to his 1986 Delaware Coach of the Year honor, Glenn has been the Delaware Catholic League Coach of the Year (1980), head coach for the Delaware All-Star Game (1981), assistant coach for the Delaware All-Star Game (1991) and Delaware Today Magazine's 1987 Coach of the Year.

He was the head coach at Staunton River High School in Moneta, Va., from 1969 to 1971, and started his coaching career as an assistant at Boones Creek High School in Johnson City, Tenn., in 1966.

Glenn graduated from East Tennessee State University in 1967 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education. He played four years of college football, the first two serving as tri-captain and earning all-conference honors at Ferrum Junior College. He also spent two years in the United States Army.
