Coastal Carolina University football coach Joe Moglia loaded his team onto a bus on Tuesday and took them to… vote.
Moglia, who was previously chairman of TD Ameritrade and worked for Merrill Lynch, before he made a career change, told the Sun News of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, that his school would be the only one outside of the service academies to vote as a team.
Moglia said his staff helped players obtain voter identification cards. And though some players had voted early, they accompanied the team to the polls “just to support their teammates.”
Besides the service academies CCU is the only college football team in the nation to vote as a team. #GetOut&Vote

Moglia gives up 30 minutes of practice time each Thursday for a “life after football” session, and last week’s session featured interns portraying Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump taking questions from the team, the newspaper reported.
