Pace announced today that it has hired former NFL linebacker Chris Slade as its new football coach.

Slade replaces Matt Hall, who has been the school's only football coach since the program's inception in 2006. Hall is also Pace's baseball coach and Upper School dean of students as well as a history teacher and will remain at the school in those capacities.

Slade joined the Pace football staff as an assistant coach this year. He also serves as an assistant eighth-grade boys' basketball coach and a admissions associate at the school.

He played for nine years in the NFL -- the first eight (1993-00) with the New England Patriots and his final season (2001) with the Carolina Panthers. Before that, he was an All-ACC performer in college at Virginia.

More details will come in a longer article, which will be published online on Friday.
