Hall to make $800,000 a year as USM head coach

The University of Southern Mississippi recently hired Will Hall as its next head coach, and he has received a great contract for his future work.

The former University of Tulane offensive coordinator will receive $800,000 a year as the Golden Eagles head coach, and the contract is good for four years. Hall’s deal is much bigger than former USM coach Jay Hopson who was pulling in $500,000 annually.

In addition to Hall’s salary as the Golden Eagles head coach, his budget contains $2.1 million to pay for assistant coaches that he might want to add to his staff. If he decides to leave USM before the 2022 season, Hall would owe the University $1.5 million to get out of his contract.

Hall has an excellent history of being a head coach on the collegiate level. Before joining Tulane, he coached at West Alabama and West Georgia where he had a combined 56-20 record as a head coach.

USM will end its season Thursday playing at home against Florida Atlantic University.
