Navy head football coach Brian Newberry announced Friday that Grant Chesnut will not return to the Navy football coaching staff in 2024. A national search for an offensive coordinator will begin immediately.
“As the head coach my job is to constantly evaluate every part of our program, starting with myself and the rest of our staff,” said Newberry. “Every decision I make is purely about what’s best for our program and our players. These decisions can sometimes be very difficult, but are necessary. This is a results-oriented business and we did not effectively produce on the offensive side of the ball the way we expect or need to. I am grateful for Coach Chesnut’s hard work and service to our program over the past year. We wish him and his wonderful family all the best moving forward.”
