Now in his fourth season as Toledo’s offensive line coach and running game coordinator, Mike Hallett has been a driving force in making Toledo’s offense one of the best in the Mid-American Conference.
Last season, Hallett helped the Rockets rank first in the Mid-American Conference in scoring offense (40.4) as well as No. 2 in total offense (443.8) and rushing (215.9). Under Hallett’s guidance, junior center Bryce Harris earned second-team All-MAC honors, while redshirt freshman Bryant Koback rushed for 917 yards.
In 2017, Hallett helped guide a Toledo running attack that spearheaded the Rockets’ MAC Championship run. UT averaged 204.0 rushing yards per game, third-best in the MAC. The Rockets also ranked first in the MAC in total offense and passing efficiency, and second in scoring offense and passing offense. Senior Terry Swanson led the MAC with 1,363 yards rushing. Swanson earned first-team All-MAC honors, as did senior offensive linemen Elijah Nkansah and Brant Weiss. All three players signed free-agent contracts with NFL teams following the season.
