|INTERIM HEAD COACH FRED FARRIER|
MORGAN STATE FOOTBALL
BALTIMORE, Maryland -- Morgan State University head football coach Lee Hull today informed university officials that he has accepted a position with the NFL's Indianapolis Colts. Hull led the Bears to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) championship and its first Football Championship Subdivison playoff appearance in school history in 2014, during what MSU called its football program's "Return to Greatness" season.
Hull resigned his position today after two years as Morgan's head football coach to accept a position as wide receivers coach with the Indianapolis Colts.
"We were pleased with the direction Coach Hull was taking our football program," says Athletics Director Floyd Kerr. "We are sorry to see him leave but, of course, wish him well and continued success in his future endeavors."
Kerr has named current Bears offensive coordinator and quarterback coach Fred Farrier as interim head coach, providing some continuity to the program, he says. Farrier was recruited by Hull to be the team's offensive coordinator, a role he had filled for the past two years. He will serve as interim head coach until a permanent replacement is identified.
A native of Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Farrier joined the Bears after spending a pair of seasons as the passing game coordinator at RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute). His tutelage of the quarterbacks was instrumental in the RPI Engineers' offensive resurgence. Prior to joining RPI, Farrier served four seasons as the head coach of Kentucky State (2005-09). He coached the Thoroughbreds to an average of over 30 points and 375 yards per game. He also had a punting unit that earned national rankings and saw nearly 30 student-athletes capture postseason honors for athletic and academic achievements. Farrier also has college coaching experience from his tenure at Shaw University, where he was the associate head coach and offensive coordinator in 2004.
