Hall Returns to SSU Staff
Alan Hall will return to the Savannah State University football coaching staff as offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, interim athletics director Marilynn Suggs announced. Hall’s first day at SSU will be March 1, 2010.
“We are excited about Coach Hall rejoining our football staff,” said Suggs. “He did a great job as offensive coordinator for us in 2008 and we are confident that he will pick up where he left off.”
While at Savannah State in 2008, Hall served as offensive coordinator/ quarterbacks coach and helped the Tigers win five games, the most since 1999. The year before Hall arrived, SSU averaged 8.4 points per game and 189 yards per game. In 2008, Savannah State averaged 314 yards per game and 19.2 points a game.
“I am happy to be back at Savannah State. I really enjoyed my time here,” Hall said. “When I was at SSU, I grew very close with many of the players. I thank the administration for the opportunity to work with the team again.”
Hall served as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at Winston-Salem State during the 2009 season. The Tampa, Florida native has worked on the college level since 1998
Hall’s previous stops include East Mississippi Community College, Newberry, Dodge City Community College, Independence Community College, Pikeville and Adams State. He got his start on the high school level at Monterey and Ridgeview High Schools.
“This is good news for our program,” said interim head football coach Julius Dixon. “Alan brings a wealth of knowledge to the program. Plus he has been here before and we have worked well together, so we shouldn’t miss a beat.”
Hall played quarterback at the University of Miami-FL and was a member of the 1991 national championship team.
Born March 17, 1973, Hall has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Charter Oak State and a Master of Arts from West Alabama. He is currently pursuing his Doctorate degree from Fielding Graduate Institute.
