Football games between Clemson, South Carolina and the state's FCS schools have long been considered advantageous for programs on both sides of the equation.
Coastal Carolina coach Joe Moglia has a different opinion, and for that reason the Chanticleers have opted out of next season's scheduled game against Clemson at Death Valley.
Moglia told MyHorryNews.com that the "wear and tear" resulting from games against elite-level FBS programs is not worth the money received by the FCS schools.
"We're not playing Clemson - we said we didn't want to play Clemson," Moglia told the website.
Moglia, who came to Coastal Carolina after serving as CEO of the TD Ameritrade brokerage firm, has repeatedly voiced his concerns about playing games against FBS teams.
Coastal Carolina played South Carolina this season and lost 70-10, the week before embarking on the FCS playoffs.
"The wear and tear is very significant," Moglia said. "I don't think that game is particularly opportune."
Clemson last played Coastal Carolina 2009, with the Tigers winning 49-3 at Death Valley.
