    Adam Hall Named Utah Valley's Next Head Coach

    In late-August word out of Orem, Utah was that longtime head coach Greg Williams would step down as head coach at Utah Valley after the 2023-24 campaign. Williams has led the Utah Valley program since the 2006-07 season, when they were in the middle of a transition from junior college to DI status. 

    During his tenure in Orem, Williams oversaw five wrestlers earning NCAA All-American honors for Utah Valley. All-American Demetrius Romero also became the first UVU wrestler to win a Big 12 championship. He first accomplished that feat in 2019, but earned a second in 2021. 

    With Williams stepping down, the Utah Valley athletic department has moved swiftly to hire his replacement. InterMat has learned that UVU will hire NC State’s associate head coach, Adam Hall, as its next head coach. 

    Hall is in the middle of his ninth season in Raleigh as a member of the Wolfpack coaching staff. He’s been in his current role since the 2019-20 season. While with NC State, Hall has assisted with a program that’s finished in the top-20 at the NCAA Championships on seven occasions, highlighted by a fourth-place tie in 2018. The Wolfpack have finished tenth in the nation in each of the last two years. NC State has also been the class of the ACC - winning six titles within Hall’s tenure.

    Before coming to NC State, Hall started his collegiate coaching career with four years at Columbia. 

    As wrestler, Hall starred for the now-defunct Boise State program. In his final two seasons, Hall earned Pac-10 titles and a spot on the NCAA podium - finishing third as a junior and fifth as a senior. He was a top-ten seed at nationals during those final two years. Hall also finished fifth at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Trials. 

    Hall has been regarded as one of the top recruiters in the country. As a leader in NC State’s recruiting efforts, Hall helped oversee classes that were ranked third in the nation in 2022 and fifth in 2021. 

    Not only did Hall attend Boise State, he is an Idaho native. His knowledge and connections out west should prove vital to recruiting at Utah Valley. While NC State generally got talent up-and-down the eastern seaboard, under Hall’s watch, they did sign plenty of high-caliber recruits from all over the country. 

    Hall will take over at Utah Valley at the conclusion of the 2024 NCAA Tournament.
