MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Middle Tennessee assistant baseball coach Scott Hall has resigned to pursue outside interest, Blue Raider Head Coach Jim McGuire announced Friday.

McGuire said a national search will be conducted to fill the position.

“I was surprised when Coach Hall approached me about resigning, but he felt the timing was right to look into some other areas he wants to pursue,” McGuire said. “He has been with me since I took over as head coach. We have been through a lot together. His contributions to our program are appreciated and he will be missed. I wish Coach Hall and his family the best.

“We will start the process to hire a new assistant as soon as possible,” McGuire added.

After being named head coach in 2012, McGuire’s first hire was Hall, who also served as Middle Tennessee’s recruiting coordinator. Hall said the decision to leave the Middle Tennessee program was difficult, particularly with such a strong foundation in place for future success.

“The best individual moment of my coaching career was having Jim McGuire ask me to join his staff,” Hall said. “All of the relationships that I have formed through this game are, I pray, ones that are for a lifetime regardless of my decision. I am stepping away from the coaching profession. I would not trade my years working in baseball for anything but, selfishly, now is the time to see some semblance of a normal life for myself and my family.”

Hall and his wife, Jennifer, recently welcomed their second child, 17-month-old Piper, and they also have a son, Preston. Hall said he planned on spending more time with his family and pursuing other business interests.

In addition to recruiting, some of Hall’s other duties included working with hitters, outfielders and serving as the Blue Raiders’ third base coach.

“The Blue Raider baseball family is special,” Hall said. “It was an honor putting on the same uniform as Coach John Stanford and Coach Steve Peterson, along with all of the great players. I want to thank Chris Massaro and Dr. (Sidney) McPhee and, most of all, Jim McGuire. The future of (Middle Tennessee baseball) is bright under his leadership.”
