Maryland wide receivers coach Lee Hull has interviewed with Morgan State for the head coaching position, according to a report by CoachingSearch.com. Hull is currently finishing his fifth season in College Park, as one of the holdovers from the Ralph Friedgen regime, though his contract, like every other Terrapins assistant except for Coach Randy Edsall and the coordinators, expires Dec. 31.
Himself a former wide receiver with several seasons of Canadian Football League experience, Hull came to Maryland in 2008 after spending five seasons with Oregon State, coaching the running backs and wide receivers there. He began his coaching career in the high school ranks, quickly rising to join Holy Cross as the linebackers coach in 1998. This season, he made a base salary of $133,875 with $41,592 in incentives, giving him the second-lowest salary of the team’s assistant coaches.
The Terps already have lost assistant coach Greg Gattuso to the head job at Albany, though he plans to remain on staff through the Military Bowl this week.
CoachingSearch also reported that Morgan State has spoken with Terry Sims, the assistant head coach at Bethune-Cookman, who also runs the defensive backs and special teams there. The Bears went 5-7 this fall and 5-3 in the MEAC, relieving Donald Hill-Eley of his coaching duties at season’s end. The program announced its intention to form a university-wide search committee which would name a new coach “in the coming weeks.”
