King's arrival with Chanticleers announced

Coastal Carolina University football posted full information Monday regarding Coach Joey King’s arrival to the Chanticleers' program from Cartersville High School.

-- from "King joins head coach Jamey Chadwell's staff after five seasons as the head coach of the Purple Hurricanes where he guided Cartersville High School to a 67-4 record, two state championships and four state title games.

At Coastal Carolina, King will coach the wide receivers.

"Coach King comes to us from the high school ranks where he was a head coach for the last five years at Cartersville High School in the state of Georgia where he posted a record of 67-4 and won two state championships. He will be our wide receivers coach and is an offensive-minded coach that is highly regarded throughout the state of Georgia where he coached for over 10 years. We are fortunate to have him because he had a lot of opportunities to go some different routes in the college game, but he really believed in the vision of our program and what we are about. He believes in what we are trying to do and wants to be a part of that. Our players will be better with him because of the type of person he is, the way he coaches and because of what he believes in. I'm excited for our wide receivers because he will do a great job of getting them ready to go and also loving and serving them."

Prior to his five years at Cartersville, where he was instrumental in the development of quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who led Clemson University this past season to an undefeated record and the NCAA national championship one year after graduating from Cartersville, King coached at Carrollton and Sonoraville high schools after beginning his coaching career at Jacksonville State University.

King is a native of Cedartown, Ga. He earned a bachelor's degree from Carson-Newman University in Tennessee and a master's degree and Education Specialist degree from Jacksonville State.

King and his wife, Ashley, have three children Jay, Ty, and Jesse."
