|Position:||Associate Head Coach|
Tim Hall completed his fifth season as a member of Clemson’s track & field coaching staff in 2013. Hall, who is in charge of coaching the sprints, hurdles and relays for Clemson’s male and female athletes, has had a major impact on the Tiger program in his time on the job. In August of 2012, he was named associate head coach for the program.
Clemson has captured eight straight ACC championships in women’s indoor and outdoor track & field with Hall on the staff. The women’s team has had eight straight NCAA top-20 finishes as well, highlighted by a pair of top-five performances in 2012 and two top-10 showings in 2013.
Hall’s groups have been major parts of Clemson’s success over the past few years, particularly on the women’s side. His groups have claimed 38 ACC event titles in his five years with the program, including 30 in women’s track & field alone the last four seasons.
Hall's athletes had a memorable 2013 indoor and outdoor season. He was named USTFCCCA Southeast Region Indoor Assistant Coach of the Year for women's track & field, and Outdoor Assistant Coach of the Year for men's track & field. He led Brianna Rollins to a pair of NCAA titles and collegiate records. She first established the NCAA record in the 60 hurdles with a time of 7.78 in January, before winning a second career gold medal in the event in March. She followed with her first outdoor crown in June by running a NCAA and Hayward Field record of 12.39. Rollins, a semifinalist for The Bowerman, was the USTFCCCA National Track Athlete of the Year for outdoor season.
Hall coached a pair of ACC Most Valuable Track Performers in sophomore sensations Dezerea Bryant (indoor) and Keni Harrison (outdoor). Bryant earned four first-team All-America honors in 2013, while Harrison earned three at the outdoor national meet in June. On the men's side, he coached Spencer Adams to ACC titles and bronze medal NCAA performances in the high hurdles. He coached Tevin Hester to All-ACC status in three events as a freshman as well.
Hall was the recipient of the USTFCCCA Southeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year award in 2012 after leading the Tiger sprints program to an outstanding outdoor campaign. His group was responsible for nine ACC Championships, including five during outdoor season. He coached 11 of Clemson’s 25 All-Americans, including Dezerea Bryant, the ACC Indoor and Outdoor Freshman of the Year. Bryant won four individual ACC short sprint titles and a gold medal in the 4x100 relay at the IAAF World Junior Championships under Hall’s guidance.
Also in 2012, Hall coached his first Olympians in men’s sprinter Warren Fraser and women’s sprinter Marlena Wesh, both juniors at Clemson at the time.
In 2011, sprinter Stormy Kendrick was the ACC’s Most Valuable Track Performer both indoor and outdoor after winning titles in the 60, 100 and 200. She also led the indoor 4x400 relay and the 4x100 relay to their second straight conference crowns. He also played a role in helping the men’s 4x400 relay to an indoor/outdoor sweep of ACC titles.
He has coached the women’s 4x100 relay to four consecutive All-America performances, culminating with back-to-back bronze medals at the 2012 and 2013 national meets.
Kendrick’s ultimate accomplishment came at the 2010 IAAF World Junior Championships, where she captured gold medals in the 200 dash and 4x100 relay for Team USA. Her individual victory was just the second individual crown at the World Junior Championships by a Clemson athlete.
Hall’s athletes have made quite an impression on the Tiger record books. Bryant and Kendrick are atop the Tiger records in the 60 and 100, while Wesh owns the top 400 times for both seasons. Adams, Harrison and Rollins all added their names to the top position overall in Clemson history in various events in 2013.
On the men’s side, he coached ACC record-holder Jacoby Ford in the 60 dash. Hall coached Adams to the top 60 hurdles time (7.59) in school history at the 2013 ACC Indoor Championships, also a meet record.
Hall took Ford to the pinnacle of the sport in 2009, his first year at Clemson. With Hall’s guidance, Ford captured the NCAA championship in the 60 dash, his first and the ninth individual indoor crown for the men’s track & field program at Clemson.
Ford, now a wide receiver for the NFL’s Oakland Raiders, put together one of the most amazing seasons in the history of Clemson’s storied sprint program. Ford won ACC championships in both the 60 (with ACC record time 6.51) and 100 dash events, while also leading the Tigers at the NCAA East Regional with a championship in the 100 dash and as anchor leg for the 4x100 relay.
Due to the success of both Ford and the 4x100 relay, Hall was named USTFCCCA Southeast Region Men’s Assistant Coach of the Year for the outdoor season. It was a fitting honor for the man who guided Ford to the second-best time in Clemson history in the 100 dash (10.01) and the 4x100 relay to a school-record time of 38.77 and third-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
Hall was an assistant for Charlotte from 1996-2008, and served the program as its associate head coach his final three years. During his time with the 49ers, his groups repeatedly re-wrote school and conference records. Hall was also instrumental in helping Charlotte to numerous team championships, first in Conference-USA and then in the Atlantic-10.
In his final season with the 49ers he coached Lamarra Currie, who earned conference crowns in the 100, 200, and 4x100, 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 400 dash and 4x400 relay. She was named A-10 Rookie of the Year.
On the men’s side, Darius Law won the 200 and 400 and was named both A-10 Rookie of the Year and Most Outstanding Performer for his efforts. In total, Hall’s athletes 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 USTFCCCA 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 4x100 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 400 indoor champion in 2008, 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 100 dash in 2006.
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 60 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.
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 (22) and Timothy Jr. (8).
