In Charge of Offense/Running Backs

Galen Hall

Galen Hall is in his eighth season at Penn State, overseeing the offense and coaching the running backs. He has been instrumental in the development of a 1,000-yard rusher in each of the past seven seasons, including school career rushing leader Evan Royster, who is the only Nittany Lion with three 1,000-yard rushing seasons (2008-10). In 2011, Silas Redd has gained 1,118 yards, with five consecutive 100-yard games, to earn second-team All-Big Ten honors. Hall also coached Rodney Kinlaw (2007) and Tony Hunt (2005-06), who ran for more than 1,000 yards. Under Hall, the Lions were second in the Big Ten in total offense (406.9 ypg) in 2009 and broke school records for total offense and passing yards in 2007. He returned to his alma mater in 2004 having achieved numerous successes in the collegiate and professional ranks. A native of Williamsburg, Pa., he served as running backs coach with the Dallas Cowboys, where he coached Emmitt Smith in 2002 when Smith broke the NFL all-time rushing record. Hall was head coach of the Rhein Fire in NFL Europe from 1995-2000, leading the team to three World Bowl berths, including NFL Europe titles in 1998 and 2000. He was selected NFL Europe Coach-of-the-Year three times. Hall compiled a 40-18-1 record as head coach at the University of Florida from 1984-89, winning Associated Press Coach-of-the-Year honors in 1984 after leading the Gators to a 9-1-1 mark. He also was offensive coordinator at Oklahoma from 1966-83, developing numerous All-Americans. Hall was the Lions' starting quarterback in 1960 and '61, guiding them to wins in the Liberty and Gator Bowls.
