Chuck Faucette is a graduate of Willingboro H.S. in Willingboro, N.J. He was a three sport athlete, playing football, basketball, and baseball. During his senior year, he signed a letter of intent to play football at UCLA. Later that summer, Chuck was drafted in the 1981 baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays. He decided to play professional baseball rather than to accept the football scholarship offered by UCLA.
After 2 years in minor league baseball, Chuck decided to leave baseball and play college football. He attended the University of Maryland and played for legendary coach, Bobby Ross. While at Maryland, Chuck was a 4-year starter at Linebacker and helped Maryland attain three consecutive ACC championships. He was a three time All-American, a two time All-ACC selection, as well as a team captain. Upon graduating from the University of Maryland, Faucette was drafted by the New York Giants in the 1987 NFL draft. After playing pre-season with the Giants, he was traded to the San Diego Chargers. After playing only two seasons, his career was cut short by a serious neck injury.
In 1990, Chuck began his coaching career as the Head Football Coach at Crawford High School in San Diego. His first job in the Strength and Conditioning profession came in the Canadian football league as Head Strength coach for the Hamilton Tiger Cats. Coach Faucette helped guide his team to the Eastern Division championship game in 1992, which was just one game away from the Grey Cup, the "Super Bowl" of Canadian Football. After another stint as a head high school football coach in Houston, TX, Chuck was then hired by mentor and friend, Coach Jeff Madden, at the University of Texas. His responsibilities included coaching football and women's golf. During this time, the football team went on to play in the 1999 Cotton Bowl and the 2000 Holiday Bowl games. Of his experience working with Coach Madden, Chuck states that, "While at Texas I learned from one of the best! Coach Madden has turned out many head coaches and taught me a lot about the business. I owe a lot of my success in this field to him!"
In 2001, Chuck became the Director of Strength and Conditioning at Southern Methodist University. During his 6 years of overseeing the University's 21 Men's and Women's sports, there were 51 All-Conference players, 45 All-Americans, 8 National Champions, 10 Olympians, and 19 Conference Champions. In his final season, the Mustangs football team became bowl eligible for the first time in 20 years. Chuck returned to the University of Texas in 2007 to be close to his daughter who is an All-American volleyball player on the Texas team. "Being able to go back to Texas and coach and also see my daughter play her freshman year was something very special. For Coach Madden to bring me back and allow me to experience this is something I can never thank him enough for!"
Chuck is currently an Assistant Strength Coach with the St. Louis Rams. He is married to the former Peggy Selland and has four daughters: Jenna, Juliann, Javoni, and Jade.
