Coach Danny Hale to be Inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame

Former Bloomsburg University head coach Danny Hale has been selected to be inducted into the 2024 College Football Hall of Fame Class, as announced by the National Football Foundation and ESPN on Monday.

Hale coached at West Chester University from 1984 to 1988 before moving to Bloomsburg. Coaching from 1993 to 2012, winning a total of 173 games, the most in Bloomsburg school history.

Coach Hale led the Huskies to their most successful season in 2000, making it to the NCAA championship game, but the team would ultimately come up short of winning.

Hale will be joining current Huskies Head Coach Frank Sheptock (Class of 2007) in the hall. Bloomsburg will become the only Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) school with multiple College Football Hall of Fame inductees.

He will be inducted, alongside fellow coaches, Mark Dantonio (Cincinnati 2004-06, Michigan State 2007-19) and Frank Solich (Nebraska 1998-2003, Ohio 2005-20) into the College Football Hall of Fame on December 10, 2024, in Las Vegas.
