Tim Hall was appointed Director of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation in July, 2013.
Hall joined the UMBC community after serving as Director of Athletics at the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) since February, 2007. A member of the Chancellor’s executive cabinet, Hall’s stewardship of the program propelled UMKC to new heights at the NCAA Division I level in athletic competitiveness, academic success, fundraising and community service efforts.
Hall succeeded Dr. Charles Brown, who retired as the longest-tenured NCAA Division I director in Maryland history.
In his first year, the Retrievers placed third in the America East Conference Stuart P. Haskell, Jr. Commissioner’s Cup race. UMBC’s three championships, recorded in men’s soccer, women’s soccer and men’s cross country, fell one shy of its best showing in championships won in a single year. In 2013-14, UMBC also posted four runner-up finishes, placing second in the sports of volleyball, women’s swimming and diving, men’s lacrosse and men’s outdoor track and field. In addition, the department posted its best year grade-point-average (GPA) since joining the America East Conference for the 2003-04 academic year.
Hall served as the chairman of the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics for 2014-15, having been on the committee since 2011. He also previously chaired the CWA/MOIC (Minority Opportunities and Interests Committee) Disability Subcommittee from 2012-14.
Moreover, Hall is also in a three-year term on the NACDA Division I-AAA Executive Committee and was recently named Second Vice President. He also serves on the NCAA volleyball rules committee.
Hall went to UMKC after serving as the Associate Athletics Director for Development at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, from 2003-07. While at KSU, he was a member of the athletics senior administrative staff, working in all phases of departmental management including game and personnel contracts, scheduling, budget, policy and strategic planning.
Previously, Hall worked at Eastern Kentucky University from 2000-03. He began work as the collegiate Director for Development in 2000 before being promoted to the Director of Major Gifts and Special Projects in 2001. In this capacity, he raised over $4.6 million for the university, including $1.3 million for athletics.
Hall also served as the Assistant Director of Development at Saint Xavier University in Chicago from September 1999 through October 2000. Before moving to Chicago, Hall worked at Youngstown State University as an Assistant Director of Athletic Development from 1997-99.
Hall earned his bachelor’s degree in sports administration from the University of Toledo in 1994. He then received his master’s degree in sports administration from Kent State University in 1998.
