ASHLAND -- While working as a quarterbacks & receivers coach as well as a recruiting coordinator for New Mexico in the mid-1990's, Charlie Hall and the Lobos' staff found a talented player named Brian Urlacher.
Hall recruited Urlacher to play at New Mexico, where he starred for three seasons before being drafted ninth overall by the Chicago Bears in the 2000 NFL Draft. While Hall left and never was a coach on staff while Urlacher played at New Mexico, his continued success served as validation of the Lobos' staff's scouting and recruitment.
Coach Hall sat down with Newswatch 12 to talk about what it was like to recruit Urlacher, who is now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. You can see his full interview in the video above.
