ALVA, Okla. – Northwestern Oklahoma State University Director of Athletics, Andy Carter, has announced that effective immediately head football coach Alan Hall is stepping away from his day-to-day responsibilities with the program in order to focus on his health.OSB-NWOSU-150

“Our primary focus is on Alan and his long-term health. Alan is not only a member of the Ranger family, but he is my friend. It would be irresponsible for him to continue operating in the high-stress environment of college football with his current health issues. Alan and his family have our prayers and our support.”

Assistant Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator, Kevin Turco, will oversee the day-today responsibilities of the football program during Coach Hall’s absence.

Northwestern will host Harding on Saturday afternoon, with kickoff to commence at 1 p.m.
