Malik Hall is returning to the Wagner College football program for his second stint as defensive coordinator.

Hall, 31, will begin his duties next month. He was Wagner's defensive coordinator in 2010 and led the Seahawks to a No. 17 ranking among FCS teams in total defense.

He left Wagner last year to return to his alma mater, Massachusetts, to become the defensive line coach.

Hall also has coached at Fordham, Hofstra and Central Connecticut.

Wagner finished 4-7, including 4-4 in the Northeast Conference, under veteran head coach Walt Hameline this past season.
