Mt. PleasantOceanside Collegiate Academy football coach Chad Grier has added the duties of athletic director to his ledger this fall and those new duties kept him quite busy during the summer months.

The coaching roster has changed significantly since May as Grier has hired several new varsity head coaches, as well as assistant coaches in football.

In volleyball, Grier announced the hiring of Amir Khaledi as the next head coach. Khaledi is well-known as a volleyball coach in the Lowcountry, having served as head coach at both Charleston Southern and The Citadel. His biggest successes came at CSU where he was a three-time Big South Conference coach of the year. He is the school’s winningest coach with four Big South titles. He also is a member of the school’s athletic hall of fame.

Khaledi has also been involved on the club level as a coach for the last 18 years and also has been an assistant on the 2016 Iranian Olympic team.

Former Wando coach Marie Domin has been hired as the school’s cross country program. Domin has coached 15 seasons in Virginia and at Wando. Domin won a state title and two state runner-up titles as coach.

Courtney Beauch has been hired as the school’s swim coach. Beauch was a four-year letterwinner at Georgia Southern University and is the school record-holder in the 50 and 100 freestyle. She has been coaching in the South Carolina Swim Club since 2014.

Marci Lowrance will take over as the softball coach. Lowrance, an assistant last season, is a former star player at Charleston Southern. She left the program holding five school records for offense. Her husband, Issac, is a former CSU football player and currently is an assistant football coach at Ashley Ridge High School.

Adding to Grier’s football staff are Devin Brown and Malcolm Howard. Brown prepped at James Island High School and played collegiately at Coastal Carolina. Brown was a two-time All-American as a receiver and return specialist.

Howard played at Goose Creek High and was the defensive most valuable player in the 2009 Shrine Bowl. He played linebacker collegiately at Furman University.
