Tim Hall Added to Track & Field Coaching Staff

Sept. 3, 2008

Clemson, SC – Tim Hall, most recently associate head coach with the Charlotte 49ers, has been added to Clemson’s track & field coaching staff. Director of Track & Field Lawrence Johnson made the announcement Wednesday. Hall will be in charge of instructing the sprinters, hurdlers, and relay teams for Clemson’s male and female athletes.

“We’re really excited to have Tim Hall as an addition to our track & field staff,” Johnson said. “He brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, and accomplishment with him. He’s one of the best young sprint/hurdle minds in the country. We’re very fortunate to have him here at Clemson University.”

Hall has been an assistant for Charlotte since 1996, and has served the program as its associate head coach since 2005. During his time with the 49ers, his groups have repeatedly re-written school and conference records. Hall has also been instrumental in helping Charlotte to numerous team championships, first in Conference-USA and most recently in the Atlantic-10.

His student-athletes earned numerous accolades in 2008. He coached the 49ers to 10 Atlantic-10 championships, including both the 4x100m and 4x400m relays on the women’s side and the men’s 4x100m relay as well.

Hall coached Lamarra Currie, who earned conference crowns in the 100m, 200m, and 4x100m, was named women’s Most Outstanding Performer. She was also an NCAA qualifier in two events and CoSIDA first-team Academic All-American. He coached Ebonie Cunningham to a championship in the 400m dash and 4x400m relay. She was named A-10 Rookie-of-the-Year.

On the men’s side, Darius Law won the 200m and 400m and was named both A-10 Rookie-of-the-Year and Most Outstanding Performer for his efforts. In total, Hall’s athletes have captured 24 event championships in just three years as a member of the Atlantic-10.

His most decorated athlete while at Charlotte was Shareese Woods, a four-time NCAA All-American. Woods was 2007 A-10 women’s Most Outstanding Performer and won four individual conference championships during her time with the 49er program. Hall coached her to a gold medal with the 4x100m relay at the 2006 NACAC Under-23 team. Woods went on to have great success in 2008 after finishing her collegiate career. She was USA Track & Field’s 400m indoor champion this past winter, and was also bronze medalist in the same event at the IAAF World Championships.

Hall also guided Courtney Patterson to All-America honors with the 49ers’ women’s team. She earned the honor in the 100m dash in 2006. Patterson was also two-time Atlantic-10 champion in the 100m dash and 4x100m relay (2006, 2007) and All-East Region in the 100m both years as well.

Hall was tabbed East Region Assistant Coach-of-the-Year for women’s sprints, hurdles, and relays in 2006 after leading Charlotte to a banner year behind the strong performances of Patterson and Woods.

He coached the school’s first-ever All-Americans in the sprints, both male and female. Derrick Johnson earned the honor in the 60m dash in 2005, while Woods was the program’s first female All-American in 2006. Johnson was also 2002 Conference-USA Freshman-of-the-Year under Hall’s tutoring. Hall guided 11 sprinters to the NCAA East Region Championships in 2005, where the men’s 4x100m relay garnered All-Region recognition. The men’s 4x100m relay also earned All-Region honors in 2004.

Prior to his time with Charlotte, Hall was the head coach for the Queen City Striders AAU Track Club for six years. In 1995, the Striders earned 36 medals at the AAU Junior Olympic Games under Hall’s guidance.

Hall graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from South Carolina State in 1994. He was a three-time captain for the Bulldogs’ track team and an All-MEAC performer as well. He holds a Level II coaching certification with specialization in sprints, hurdles, and relays.

Hall is married to the former Adrean Byers. The couple has two children, TeAnna (19) and Timothy Jr. (4).
