Often called a "coach’s coach" - Outstanding NW coach, storyteller and motivator

Skip Hall

A coach's coach! 

An excellent storyteller, Skip Hall delivers a powerful message on team building and the pursuit of excellence.

As the right hand man to Don James for 18 years, Skip shares the key coaching principles that helped build the Washington Husky football program into a model program and National powerhouse---which produced 12 Bowl games---including 6 Rose Bowls and a National Championship from 1975-1993. These time tested coaching principles still work well in today's culture and marketplace.

When Don James told us - I would like to recommend Skip Hall.  He was with me at Kent and Washington.  He was also head coach at Boise state.  Now he is a speaker and would do an excellent job! - we knew we were being pointed in the right direction.

"Skip is one of those rare individuals who brings a wealth of wisdom and experience from two entirely different fields.  First, he was a masterful recruiter, coach and team builder at the highest levels of NCAA football.  Then, for the past fifteen years he has demonstrated similar leadership skills in the world of business.  He is the ultimate 'coach's coach'.  If you are committed to achieving lasting excellence, Skip is the person who can help you get there," said Price Associates Founder and CEO Ron Price

Skip has spent the last 15 years in the business arena and has been a featured speaker and consultant to a number of Fortune 500 companies as well as small to medium sized groups and organizations. He has trained and worked with many management teams on recruiting, coaching, team building and taking their businesses to a championship level.

Skip Hall is a former head football coach at Boise State University, assistant head coach at the University of Washington and the University of Missouri, and assistant coach at Colorado and Kent State. During 30 years in coaching, his teams went to 12 bowl games, including 3 Rose Bowls and the Orange bowl. He had the privilege of coaching players such as Jack Lambert and Warren Moon.

Skip is a member of the American Football Coaches Association and has served as a board member for the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.
In 1990 Skip led Boise State to the National Semifinals. Skip Hall gave Jim Zorn his first coaching job. Jim went on to become the head coach of the Washington Redskins. Jim Mora (former head coach of the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks) is a former player of Skip's.

After 30 years of coaching college football, Skip transferred his skill set into the business arena with Aflac. Recruiting, coaching and building strong teams has been his forté for 40 years. He was a Recruiting Coordinator and Regional Manager with Aflac for 10 years, and also has served as Managing Director for Principal Financial Group in Boise, Idaho. He serves as the College Recruiting Coordinator for Aflac. He is also part of the Aflac Heisman trophy promotional team.
