Tim Hall

Assistant Coach (Sprints)

Veteran sprints coach Tim Hall is in his second season at Tennessee, working most immediately with both the men's and women's squads in the short sprints, hurdles, and relays.

Hall made an instant impact in his first season at Tennessee as he produced five All-American honors and helped Christian Coleman earn the SEC Freshman Runner of the Year Award.

During the indoor season, Hall helped guide Coleman to an SEC bronze in the 60-meter dash. Coleman would go on to earn first team All-America honors at the NCAA Indoor Championships, finishing 6th in a time of 6.62. Coleman was the first UT athlete to score at the NCAA meet in the event in 2008 and the first freshman to score since Justin Gatlin in 2001. For his efforts, Coleman was awarded the SEC Freshman Runner of Year.

Coleman would claim the award again in the outdoor season, becoming the SEC Co-Freshman Runner of the Year. He would qualify for the NCAA Championships in both the 100- and 200-meter dash, earning second team All-American in each event. Another true freshman joined Coleman in Eugene: Nathan Strother. Strother was UT's first NCAA qualifier in the 400-meter dash since 2003 and earned honorable mention All-American.

On the women's side, Felicia Brown qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 200-meter dash. She was 10th overall, earning second team All-America honors. Under Hall's tutelage, Brown won the individual title in the 100-meter dash at the 2015 Penn Relays and also recorded the second-fastest 200-meter dash time in program history (22.76).

Prior to arrivingon Rocky Top, Hall spent one season as sprints coach at Kentucky as the Wildcats put together a banner performance in the women's competition. He held a similar position the five previous years at Clemson and also spent 12 seasons coaching at Charlotte.

Hall has coached winners on the conference and national level, having produced SEC and ACC individual champions and multiple NCAA winners and medalists.

At Kentucky, Hall's sprinters helped vault the UK women into the top 10 on the national stage. Kentucky finished ninth at the NCAA indoor meet and a program-best seventh at NCAA outdoors.

Individually, Dezerea Bryant became the first Kentucky woman to win an NCAA sprint championship. At the 2014 NCAA indoor championships, she won the 200-meter dash in 22.69 seconds and also finished second in a photo finish in the 60 dash (7.12) to account for 18 team points.

In his time at Clemson, Hall has five Regional Coach of the Year honors and has coached two IAAF World Junior Champions, three NCAA Champions, six ACC MVP winners, 39 ACC Individual Event Champions and 71 USTFCCCA All-Americans.

Hall notably coached three-time NCAA champion hurdler Brianna Rollins, who set the American record in the 100-meter hurdles (12.26 seconds) in 2013. He has also coached a pair of 2012 Olympians, including Warren Fraser (Bahamas).

Hall was an assistant for Charlotte from 1996-2008, serving as associate head coach his final three years. While there, he coached the school's first-ever All-Americans in men's and women's sprints. 
 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.

Alford-Sullivan said Hall will work together with fellow assistant Zach Glavash with Tennessee's sprint, hurdles and relays group. Glavash recently completed his first season at Tennessee coaching the men's sprinters.

"I had a commitment to having two coaches in those events because it's a stronghold in the conference and beyond," Alford-Sullivan said. "To be good at track and field, you have to have some strength coming from those areas."

"I do see Tim and Zach working together with both genders. I'm excited to see someone as established as Coach Hall and someone as enthusiastic and talented as Coach Glavash combine to make us strong at sprints, hurdles and relays."

Hall is married to the former Adrean Byers. The couple has two children (TeAnna and Timothy Jr.) and one granddaughter (Zanyla).

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-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference performer as well.
