DeAngelo Hall has made it very clear since retiring that he's interested in the idea of getting into coaching or joining a team's front office.
Well, Hall went on radio Friday and revealed that he very nearly almost did break into the coaching ranks, and apparently with the Redskins, no less.
The decorated former corner told Grant & Danny on 106.7 The Fan that he interviewed with the team before they ultimately went with Ray Horton to lead their secondary. Horton has helped out on numerous staffs, while Hall would've obviously been a first-time assistant.
Even though he didn't get the job, Hall "thoroughly impressed" Washington, Grant Paulsen reported.
The unfortunate part of this all is that the 15-year vet also said to The Fan that he had interviewed for the same gig at the University of Maryland and was actually offered that opportunity. However, he didn't accept because he wanted to see the process with the 'Skins out to the finish line and ended up missing both.
This round of interviews may not have gone in Hall's favor, but it sounds like the 35-year-old picked up valuable experience and handled his first attempt at all this quite well. If he wants to, he'll get his breakthrough and he'll get it soon.
Full Disclosure: DeAngelo Hall worked for NBC Sports Washington as an analyst on pre- and postgame coverage during the 2018 NFL season.
