The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (/ˈʃɒntɪklɪər/, SHON-ti-klirr) are the athletic teams that represent Coastal Carolina University. They participate in Division I of the NCAA as a member of the Sun Belt Conference in most sports, having joined that conference as a full but non-football member on July 1, 2016. At that time, the football team began a transition from the second-level Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) to the top-level Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). The team played the 2016 season as an FCS independent, joined Sun Belt football for the 2017 season, and became full FBS members for 2018 and beyond. A Chanticleer is a proud and fierce rooster. Prior to joining the Sun Belt, the Chanticleers had been members of the Big South Conference since that league’s formation in 1983. Coastal fields varsity teams in 20 sports, 9 for men and 11 for women. The university regularly competed for the Sasser Cup, the Big South’s trophy for the university with the best sports program among the member institutions, winning the trophy nine times, tied with rival Liberty University.
Until the early 1960s Coastal’s teams were known as the Trojans. When the school became an extension of the University of South Carolina, the push was made for a mascot more in line with the parent’s mascot, the Gamecock; the ultimate choice was the Chanticleer, the proud, witty rooster made famous in “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale” of Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales (the mascot itself would be named Zachary). When Coastal became an independent university in 1993, despite some calls to change the mascot as part of “a complete split from USC” , the Chanticleer remained the school’s mascot. Coastal has developed in-state rivalries with Charleston Southern, Clemson, College of Charleston, Furman, Presbyterian, South Carolina, South Carolina State, The Citadel, USC Upstate, Winthrop, and Wofford. Their fiercest in-state rivals are Charleston Southern, College of Charleston, and Winthrop. Coastal has rivalries with every Sun Belt school in the East Division (Appalachian State, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, South Alabama, and Troy). Coastal’s main Sun Belt rivals are Appalachian State and Georgia Southern.
The volleyball program is one of the most successful teams in the country. It won four consecutive conference championships (Big South 2014, 2015) (Sun Belt 2016, 2017). Leah Hardeman (‘14 -‘17) is the only player in Division I history to win four conference player of the year awards. The baseball team has developed into a national powerhouse as well; it won the national title in 2016.
