Contact Coach Hallahan:
Phil Hallahan begins his eighth season on the Lafayette coaching staff. Hallahan is coaching the Leopard running backs for the fifth straight season after mentoring the wide receivers for three seasons.
Hallhan is charged with continuing to develop Ross Scheuerman, the Patriot League's Rookie of the Year in 2011. Scheuerman led the team in rushing and in the kick return game as a freshman, earning All-Patriot League Second-Team honors.
In 2009, for the second straight season, the Lafayette corps of running backs took care of the ball, handing it over just four times, good enough for sixth in the country. Hallahan saw fifth-year senior Maurice White `10, an All-Patriot League First-Team selection, close out his career with seven touchdowns in the Leopards' pass-first offense.
In 2008, Hallahan's running backs turned the ball over just six times and the team led the nation in fewest turnovers per game. Five different running backs had 150 or more yards with three of them gaining 300 or more.
Hallahan oversaw a 2006 passing attack that was ranked 37th in the nation in passing efficiency. Joe Ort and Shaun Adair posted big numbers with Ort reeling in 50 balls for 814 yards while Adair pulled down 33 catches for 501 yards.
Lafayette's passing attack flourished in 2005, ranking second in the Patriot League with 214.8 yards per game. Brandon Stanford and Ort had career years, with Stanford earning All-Patriot League First-Team honors after finishing second in the conference with 57 catches and 683 yards. Ort caught 28 passes for 482 yards in nine games.
Prior to arriving at Lafayette, Hallahan coached running backs at Amherst College for two seasons, where he mentored tailback Fletcher Ladd to ECAC Division III Northeast Player of the Year honors and the All-New England Division II/III Team. A 2003 graduate of Syracuse University with a degree in Consumer Studies, Hallahan was the head manager for the Orange football program as an undergraduate. He also spent one summer as an administrative intern for the Syracuse football program and spent time working for the program's video coordinator.
Hallahan resides in Forks Township, Pa.
