About Joe Moglia
Joe Moglia is the Chairman of the Coastal Carolina Athletics Division, the executive for football and serves as an executive adviser to the president. He is also the Chairman of the Board for TD Ameritrade, a position he has held since 2008.
A five-time National Coach of the Year finalist and the 2015 Eddie Robinson FCS National Coach of the Year Award winner, Moglia made an immediate impact upon his arrival at Coastal Carolina prior to the 2012 season. In six seasons (2012-16, '18) on the sidelines at Coastal, Moglia posted an overall record of 56-22. The Chanticleers went a combined 51-15 over his first five years at the helm of the program, including winning four conference championships (2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016*) and qualifying for the NCAA Football Championship Playoffs all five seasons. During that span, the Chanticleers finished each year ranked in the top 25 nationally and ranked as high as the No. 1 team in the country in both 2014 and 2015.
He has also received multiple Coach of the Year honors, including the Eddie Robinson National Coach of the Year award, and was recently inducted into and received the Lombardi Hall of Fame Award.
Joe has been a football coach for 24 years, but it's not a traditional 24 years. He began his career as a coach for 16 years, moved to the business world for over 20, and back to coaching in 2009.
In his first stint as a coach he won two Ivy League Championships as the Defensive Coordinator at Dartmouth, led units that set Defense and Kicking records at Lafayette, and turned two high school programs around. Before going to Coastal, he was Executive Advisor for Football at Nebraska where he was part of two Holiday Bowls and two Big 12 North Championships. In 2011 he was Head Coach of the Omaha Nighthawks in the United Football League.
In the business world, in 1984 Joe entered the MBA Training Program at Merrill Lynch, where there were 25 MBAs and one football coach. By 1988, he was Merrill Lynch's number one producer in the world. By the time he left, he was a member of both the Institutional and Private Client Executive Committees, and his final responsibilities were all investment products, the insurance company, the 401(k) business, and the middle market business.
He became the CEO of TD Ameritrade in 2001. Over the next seven years, shareholders enjoyed a 500% return as the firm grew its market cap from $700 million to $10 billion, and today TD Ameritrade has client assets over $1 trillion. In 2008, after the firm had its sixth record year in a row, Joe stepped down as CEO and became Chairman of the Board.
Moglia has received the Ellis Island Medal of Honor and the Sharp Trophy for Leadership. He has been honored by the National Italian American Foundation, the Columbus Citizens Foundation, the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame, and the American Institute for Stuttering.
He has also been inducted into six Halls of Fame, is the recipient of three Honorary Doctorates and is also the only author in the world to have written books published on both investing and football.
