DeAngelo Hall joined the Panthers as the assistant defensive backs coach in 2023. It marks his first coaching experience after a 15-year playing career where he went to three Pro Bowls with the Falcons, Raiders and Redskins.
DeAngelo Hall makes his coaching debut with the Carolina Panthers in 2023 as assistant defensive backs coach. A three-time Pro Bowl selection and multi-year team captain, Hall enjoyed a 14-year NFL career as a defensive back, playing for Atlanta (2004-07), Oakland (2008) and Washington (2008-17).
Originally selected by Atlanta with the eighth overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, Hall played 14 seasons in the NFL, amassing 43 interceptions, 132 passes defensed, five interceptions returned for touchdown and 11 forced fumbles during his career. In 2010, Hall tied an NFL record by recording four interceptions in a single game at the Chicago Bears (10/24/10). He also holds the NFL record for most fumble return yardage in a career (328), while his five career fumble return touchdowns rank second behind Jason Taylor.
Hall earned his first Pro Bowl selection in 2005 with the Falcons, after leading the team with a career-high six interceptions. That season, Hall was part of a memorable matchup against Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens in the season opener (9/12/05) as he posted four tackles and one interception, keeping the Pro Bowl receiver out of the end zone before a nationally televised audience on ABC's "Monday Night Football." Hall earned his second career Pro Bowl selection the following season in 2006 after tallying 56 tackles, a team-high four interceptions, one fumble recovery and a career-high 16 passes defensed. According to STATS Inc., less than half (48.7 percent) of the passes thrown his direction were completed that season.
Hall earned his third career Pro Bowl selection in 2010 with Washington after notching a team-leading and career-high tying five interceptions. The five interceptions were tied for the fifth-most in the NFL that season and Hall's eight total takeaways tied for most in the NFL. Hall was named NFC Defensive Player of the Week for his record-setting performance in Week 7 against the Bears when he notched an NFL single-game record four interceptions. Hall was named MVP of the Pro Bowl (1/30/11) as he forced a fumble by wide receiver Wes Welker and returned the ball 34 yards for a touchdown, and added six tackles and an interception, in the NFC's 55-41 victory over the AFC in the league's annual all-star game.
A native of Chesapeake, Va., Hall played three seasons at Virginia Tech, recording 190 tackles, 20 passes defensed, eight interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and seven receptions for 86 yards with one touchdown. He also returned 56 punts for 839 yards and five touchdowns. His five punt returns for touchdowns rank second in Big East Conference history. He earned first-team All-America honors as a punt returner as a junior and was a semi-finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation's top defensive back. In 2016, Hall was inducted into the Virginia Tech Sports Hall of Fame.
Prior to entering the coaching ranks, Hall worked as an analyst for NFL Network beginning in 2019. In his role, Hall appeared on various NFL Network shows such as NFL Total Access and Good Morning Football: Weekend, as well as NFL Network's on-location coverage of such events as the Super Bowl and training camps.
Hall and his wife, Jada, have six children: Tyrel, Mya, TaLia, Bre, and twins, Jaden and DJ.
