Scott Hall enters his first season as a member of the Blue Raider coaching staff. Hall joins the program after spending the last six seasons at Belmont.
Hall will work primarily with the offense, in addition to serving as the recruiting coordinator.
After five seasons with the Bruins, Hall was given the title of Assistant Coach for Player Development in 2011 and took over primary responsibilities as the recruiting coordinator. During his tenure, seven Bruins were drafted by Major League Baseball.
In six years at Belmont, Hall helped the Bruins reach the Atlantic Sun Tournament on five occasions, including back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012. He was pivotal in the maturation of upperclassmen in those two seasons, which were responsible for a number of program records, including 39 wins, two A-Sun Championships, and the first ever berth into the NCAA Regional. In his first season, Hall helped Belmont set a then program-record 34 wins while finishing second in the A-Sun standings.
The Bruins offensive records in 2011 also included the most team hits (646), runs scored (428), total bases (997), and runs batted in (396) in program history, and the team was sixth in the country with 64 home runs. Numerous individual players earned accolades under Hall’s tutelage, including First Team All-Atlantic Sun honors for Matt Hamann, Nate Woods, and Dylan Craig.
In 2010, the Bruins' offense finished in the top five in the Atlantic Sun Conference in slugging percentage, on-base percentage, walks, home runs and limited strikeouts. Belmont also hit .315 as a team, the highest team batting average during Hall's tenure. The Bruins were led on offense by Nate Woods, who set a single-season home run record at Belmont with 20. He also recorded a Belmont record of 78 runs batted in, putting him at the top of national rankings in the category. 2010 also saw Packy Elkins set single-season and career records in walks at Belmont to go along with 15 home runs. Elkins also became the seventh hitter drafted by MLB during Hall's tenure at BU, making him the third infielder since Hall became the primary infield instructor for the Bruins.
In 2009, Derek Wiley set an Atlantic Sun record of 58 career home runs, Dylan Craig was named Freshman of the Year and Belmont placed three players on the All-Conference team. Craig was also named to the Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America Team by Collegiate Baseball.
Hall's duties from 2006-08 included outfield coach, first-base coach and coordinator of scouting reports. He also assisted with hitting instruction and directing of camps at Belmont. Under Hall's direction, the 2007 Bruin outfield led the Atlantic Sun Conference in fielding percentage and committed only one error in the regular season. Three members of the 2007 outfield were drafted.
Before coming to Belmont in the summer of 2006, Hall was the head baseball coach at Central High School in Shelbyville, Tenn. During his seven-year stint at Shelbyville, his teams won the District 8AAA championship two times and set a school record in wins four times. Hall was named District 8AAA Coach of the Year in 2006, and saw sixteen players go on to play college baseball, including six at the Division I level and two MLB Draft picks (Rex Brothers, first round; Jonathan White, 41st round). Under Hall's direction, the program raised $350,000 to fund new facilities, including an indoor hitting facility and clubhouse.
In 2005 Hall served as the head coach for Region III and IV at the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association Showcase.
Hall has also staffed numerous camps across the country including the University of Tennessee, Vanderbilt University and the University of Illinois.
Hall was a four-year starter at Maryville College where he earned All-South honors in 1995 and graduated in 1998.
Hall and his wife, Jennifer, reside in Murfreesboro, Tenn. with their son Preston.
