Legendary coach Bobby Hall will be named Biloxi High's new football coach on Wednesday

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Legendary head coach Bobby Hall stepped down after the 2014 season.  He decided it was time to leave Madison Central after nine seasons, 85 wins and 31 defeats.

It didn't stay away from the coaching ranks for too long.  On Wednesday Hall will be introduced as the new head football coach at Biloxi High School replacing John Shannon who resigned in December.

Hall rings loads of experience to Biloxi. 37 years to be exact.

He began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Itawamba AHS in 1978. Hall was named head football coach at Raleigh in 1980 and stayed there for four seasons.

From 1984-1989 Hall coached Amory High School.

Hall was named head coach at Louisville and stayed there from 1990 through the 1992 season and captured the 1991 state title.

Hall returned to Amory in 1993 and won state championships in 1994, 1995 and 1998 and led those teams to perfect 15-0 seasons. 

In 2000 Hall was the head coach at Wayne County and guided the War Eagles for only one season.

From 2001-2002 Hall was the head coach at Northeast Community College.

In 2003 took over the head coaching reins of the Tupelo Fire Ants.

From 2004-2005 Hall jumped into the college ranks and was quarterbacks coach at Murray State.

He returned to Mississippi in 2006 to become head coach at Madison Central High School and stayed there until this past season.  He notified school officials that he would step down after the 2014 campaign and did.

On Wednesday Hall begins another challenge, taking over a Biloxi High School football team that failed to win a Region 4-6A game in 2014.
