Mitch Hall is in his second season as the assistant coach for the College of Charleston sailing program.
A graduate of the University of South Florida, Hall joined the Cougars during the 2011-12 season after serving as the head coach at Tulane.
Last year, CofC captured its first-ever ICSA/APS Team Race National Championship title in program history and was presented with the Leonard M. Fowle Trophy, awarded annually to the best overall collegiate team in the nation.
Hall has won numerous events in his sailing career including the ICSA Sloop Championships, the ISSA Singlehanded Nationals and the U.S. Sailing Singlehanded Nationals.
"We are exceptionally fortunate to have brought Mitch and Ned on board," CofC Director of Sailing Greg Fisher said. "They exude a passion for the sport, and our program, that has added to everyone's enthusiasm. Mitch and Ned are great sailors in their own right, plus they are excellent coaches and are already doing a super job in leading the team and maintaining our growing facility."
Hall also excels at team racing and helps supplement the strength the Cougars show in team racing as evidenced by their third place finish at the 2011 Nationals.
"I am extremely excited to be a part of such a strong and growing program at the College of Charleston," Hall said. "The Cougars have to field the most depth of any team in the country. Ward and Greg have been great to work with. We have a lot to look forward to."
