SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento State head football coach Jody Sears has hired JB Hall as the team's cornerbacks coach, it was announced today. Hall replaces CJ Cox who recently became the cornerbacks coach at Montana.
Hall comes to the Hornets after spending three seasons at Montana as the Grizzlies cornerbacks coach. Montana advanced to the second round of the FCS playoffs in his first season (2015).
"JB is an excellent young coach that comes highly recommended," Sears said. "The biggest thing that made me pull the trigger on him was how sincere and professional he was during the process. He has a passion for teaching young men and will be a great fit for our staff. He's a proven commodity and student athletes are going to benefit greatly from his expertise."
Before coming to Montana in 2015, Hall was a defensive graduate assistant at Colorado for two seasons, where his primary role was assisting with the linebackers along with general overall duties in the entire defense. In his first season he assisted in coaching the defensive line.
"I am blessed an fortunate to work with Coach Sears and the staff he has in place," Hall said. "The direction of this program in trending upward and I want to be a part of it. You can see it in the players on the team and the players they are bringing in and I am excited to help keep it going in that direction."
Hall lettered four years as a wide receiver at Adams State where he had 39 receptions for 450 yards (11.5 per catch) and a touchdown. He also threw a touchdown pass that covered 13 yards as a senior against Western New Mexico. A team captain, he earned Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference academic team honors.
The Boulder, Colo., native was a youth sports camp coordinator at the Family Learning Center for four summers (2009-12), involved in management, organization, teaching and education. He also was a volunteer coach at Centaurus High School in Lafayette, Colo., during the summer of 2012, where he completed over 50 hours of coaching-related duties.
Hall graduated from Adams State with a degree in human performance and physical education in May 2013 and a minor in marketing and coaching. He and his wife, Marisa, have one son (Tre).
