West Georgia hires West Alabama head coach Hall

West Georgia Will Hall

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- West Georgia has hired Will Hall away from West Alabama to be its new football coach.

West Georgia officials announced Hall's hiring on Friday during a news conference in Carrollton.

Hall led West Alabama to back-to-back Gulf South Conference championships, and he is a two-time coach of the year in the NCAA Division II conference.

West Georgia athletics director Daryl Dickey calls Hall one of the brightest young stars in the game.

Dickey was serving as both head coach and AD but gave up coaching at the end of the season.

West Alabama has named Desmond Lindsey as interim coach. Lindsey worked the last three seasons as assistant head coach under Hall.
