Joseph Hugh Moglia (born April 1, 1949) is an American businessman and football coach. He is the current head football coach of the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, an FCS Independent program currently undergoing a two-year transition up to the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Sun Belt Conference. Moglia is also the current Chairman and former CEO of TD Ameritrade,[1] the largest online discount brokerage firm in the world in terms of the number of retail online equity trades placed each day.

Moglia is the author of two books: The Perimeter Attack Offense and Coach Yourself to Success: Winning the Investment Game.

Early career[edit]

Moglia attended Fordham Preparatory School in the Bronx from 1963 to 1967. He earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Fordham University and his master's degree in secondary education from the University of Delaware. He was a football coach for 16 years, finishing as the defensive coordinator at Dartmouth College from 1981 to 1983.

After the 1983 football season ended, Moglia decided to start a second career on Wall Street. Moglia joined a training class at Merrill Lynch with twenty-four MBA graduates.[1]

Business career[edit]

Moglia spent 17 years at Merrill Lynch, where he was a member of the executive committees for both the institutional business and the private client business. Before leaving to take the role of chief executive officer at Ameritrade Holding Corp (now TD Ameritrade) in 2001, he was responsible for all investment products, the insurance company, the 401(k) business and the middle-market business.

In his seven years at TD Ameritrade, Moglia and his executive management team oversaw the company as its client assets grew from $24 billion to over $300 billion, increased its market capitalization from $700 million to $12 billion[2] and produced five consecutive years of record earnings performance. He has also helped the company capitalize on merger and acquisition opportunities, including two of the largest in the discount brokerage industry: Datek Online Holdings in September 2002 and TD Waterhouse in January 2006.[2]

In March 2008, citing the desire to pursue other interests, Moglia announced he would be vacating the CEO position in the coming fall.[2] A search for his successor took place over the spring and summer. In September 2008, Moglia officially stepped down from his CEO position at TD Ameritrade. Fred Tomczyk, the former COO at TD Bank Financial Group, succeeded him. Not completely leaving the company, Moglia became the new chairman, succeeding J. Joseph Ricketts. It was the first time in the company's history where no member of the Ricketts family was a member of the management team, outside of the few that remain as independent directors on the board of directors.

Return to coaching[edit]

After stepping down as CEO, Moglia began work as an unpaid voluntary assistant coach/mentor for the University of Nebraska football team under Bo Pelini.[1] Moglia stated at the time that he hoped to coach at the collegiate level.[1] On November 10, 2010, Moglia was named as the head coach of the new United Football League franchise, the Virginia Destroyers. On January 12, 2011, he was then named President and head coach of the Omaha Nighthawks, whose venue was TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.

As the UFL's financial position deteriorated, Moglia signed with Coastal Carolina on December 20, 2011, replacing David Bennett. In his first season with Coastal, he led the team to win the 2012 Big South Conference Championship and was named 2012 Big South Conference Coach of the Year. After the 2015 Big South season, the Chanticleers program began the transition to NCAA Division I FBS football, a higher level of competition. Following the transition period, Coastal Carolina will compete in the Sun Belt Conference. (They will not be eligible for the conference championship until 2018.) On July 28, 2017, Moglia went on medical leave. Jamey Chadwell, whom Moglia had hired as his new offensive coordinator in January, will serve as Coastal's interim head coach.
