DeAngelo Hall On His New Position Coach

Posted by Matt Terl on February 18, 2010 – 3:15 pm

When new defensive backs coach Bob Slowik talked to Larry Michael the other day, one of the players that he singled out for praise was DeAngelo Hall.

“DHall’s got tremendous talent,” Slowik said. “You just watch him on tape and you can be nothing but impressed, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with him. The one thing that we’re gonna really emphasize this year and try to do a great job of in the secondary is getting turnovers — interceptions, fumbles, etc. And he’s one of those guys that is kinda a natural at doing that.
