FIFTY SHADES OF MAROON AND GRAY: KIRKLAND HALL

First Hawk athlete inducted into MEAC Hall of Fame

The latest addition to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) men's basketball staff is a familiar one in Kirkland Hall, who was previously the head coach of the Hawks from 1977 through 1985.

During that time period, Hall accumulated the third most wins (79) in UMES men's basketball history. He accomplished that feat without having a single player on scholarship, and finished with a 79-131 overall record.

Prior to joining the UMES coaching staff, Hall served as Director of Facilities and still serves as an Assistant Professor in the Exercise Science Department. He also served as Interim Athletics Director for five years at UMES.

Hall is no stranger to the coaching ranks as he was previously the head softball and baseball coach for UMES over a 19 year period. He finished his coaching career in both sports with the most wins in UMES history.

Hall also spent two years at Fayetteville State University as an assistant basketball and football coach.

A two-sport athlete in baseball and basketball while at UMES, Hall was the first athlete from the university inducted into the MEAC Hall of Fame.

A native of Oaksville, Md., Hall is a 1973 graduate of UMES with a bachelor's degree in Physical Education. He obtained a master's degree in Physical Education Administration from Ohio State University in 1974. Currently, he is working towards a Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership from UMES.

Hall currently resides in Eden, Md. with his wife Betty. Together they raised 10 children and have 19 grandchildren. They recently adopted a son, Damon.
