Jon Mark Hall, Director of Athletics
Jon Mark Hall was appointed to the position of USI Director of Athletics in January of 2002. He moved into the position after spending seven years as the assistant director of athletics. He is the second Director of Athletics that USI has had.
Under his direction, Athletics was the 2003-04 GLVC All-Sports and Commissioner's Cup winner and is the host of the 2004 NCAA Division II Cross Country national championships.
In addition to his duties as director of athletics, Hall also is the chair of the NCAA Division II men's and women's tennis committee. He has served on the Great Lakes Valley Conference Executive Committee and the NCAA II Great Lakes Regional women's basketball committee.
Hall joined the USI Athletic
Department in 1995 as an assistant athletic director and men's tennis coach.
As the men's tennis coach, no one did it better in the GLVC than Hall. He was named the GLVC Coach of the Year five times, directed the Screaming Eagles to four GLVC regular season titles and GLVC Tournament crowns and to a 123-47 record (.724).
During his finals season as head coach, Hall led the Eagles to its third straight appearance in the NCAA II Tournament and their first victory in the post-season. In 2000 and 2001, Hall put the Eagles on the national map with its first two invitations to the NCAA II Tournament in the 27-year history of the program.
Hall came to USI after a tenure at the University of South Carolina-Spartanburg as an assistant athletic director, where he was the NCAA compliance coordinator, oversaw the academic support service program for student athletes, and coordinated the Athletes Can Educate (ACE) program. He also assisted in fund-raising and promotion activities.
The native of Murray, Ky., is a 1990 cum laude graduate from Murray State University, with a bachelor's degree in business administration. While at MSU, Hall was on the tennis team for two seasons, earning Academic All-Ohio Valley Conference honors in 1987. Hall received his master's degree in sports administration from Ohio State University in 1992.
In 1998-99, he completed the Sports Management Institute Executive Program at the University of South Carolina and the University of Norte Dame.
Hall and his wife Patti reside in Evansville and have four sons, Nathan, Garland, Ty, and Owen, and a daughter, Mary Claire.
