BALTIMORE, Md. -- Lee Hull was introduced by Morgan State University Athletics Director Floyd Kerr as the new head football coach of the Morgan State Bears on January 9th.  Hull has been the assistant coach at Maryland since 2008, and has built an impressive coaching resume. 

Hull, 48, becomes the 19th head football coach in Morgan State history.

Hull comes to MSU after spending the past six seasons (2008-13) with the University of Maryland as wide receivers coach. During his time there he helped coach Darrius Heyward-Bey (Indianapolis Colts) and Torrey Smith (Baltimore Ravens) to first and second round NFL Draft selections, respectively, as well as building one of the most talented receiving corps in the ACC this season.

Hull also helped developed LaQuan Williams (Baltimore Ravens), Tony Logan (New England Patriots) and Quintin McCree (Winnipeg Blue Bombers) who went on to careers in professional football after leaving College Park.

Hull also has experience coaching other positions. He tutored running backs his first two seasons at Oregon State and wide receivers the last three. He coached three OSU All-Americans, including a pair of wide outs, and was a part of four bowl wins.

In 2006, he coached Sammie Stroughter to All-America status in one of Oregon State's best seasons. The Beavers posted a 10-4 record, second-best in school history, including a win over Missouri in the Sun Bowl. That season, Stroughter led the Pac-10 Conference and ranked 10th in the country in receiving yards per game (92.4).

Stroughter was on the watch list for the 2007 Biletnikoff Award, which honors the top receiver in the nation. He went on to be selected in the 2009 NFL Draft by Tampa Bay.

In Hull's first season in charge of OSU wide receivers, Mike Hass ended his stellar career as a first-team All-America selection and the winner of the 2005 Biletnikoff Award. Hass posted the third-highest receiving yards total (3,924) in league history. He is currently a member of the Seattle Seahawks.

Hull also coached current St. Louis Rams' running back Steven Jackson during the

2003 season. Jackson was a first-team All-Pac-10 and third-team All-America choice as a junior, his final season at OSU. He was a first-round draft choice in the 2004 NFL Draft.

Prior to his five seasons at Oregon State, Hull spent five years (1998-2002) at his alma mater, the College of the Holy Cross. He coached linebackers for one season before becoming wide receivers coach, as well as overseeing the kickoff coverage and kickoff return units. He also went on to become the passing game coordinator.

Hull was a standout wide receiver at Holy Cross from 1984-87, playing under former Maryland coach Mark Duffner his final two seasons. The Crusaders posted a 21-1 record his last two years and were ranked No. 1 in Division I-AA in 1987. Holy Cross also won the Colonial League title and the Lambert Cup that season.

He was a preseason All-America choice as a junior.

He went on to play professionally with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the CFL. Hull spent 1990-92 with Winnipeg where he was coached by Mike Riley in his first season. Riley was the head coach at Oregon State during Hull's five-year tenure. The Blue Bombers won the 1990 Grey Cup. He also played for Toronto in 1992.

Hull was also a free-agent signee of the New England Patriots in 1998.

Prior to joining Holy Cross, he coached at the prep level in Massachusetts for five years. He was offensive coordinator at South High School in Worcester, Mass., for three years (1992-94) and the passing game coordinator at Auburn High School in 1995. He returned to South High in 1996 as head coach.

During his coaching career, Hull has participated in a number of internships. In 1999 he interned in the CFL. In 2000 and 2001 he took part in the NFL's Minority Internship Program. In addition, he attended the 2007 Minority Coaches Forum in Chandler, Ariz.

Hull earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Holy Cross in 1988 and a master's in secondary education from Worcester State in 1995.

He had a stellar high school career as both a football player and track performer.

A native of Vineland, N.J., Hull lettered twice as a wide receiver for Vineland High School. He was selected All-Cape League, first-team All-South Jersey, first-team All-New Jersey Group-4, honorable mention all-state and the Vineland Student-Athlete of the Year. He was a long jumper and ran the 400 meters.

Hull and his wife, Stacey, have two sons, Alexander and Jordan, and one daughter, Laila.
