SCOOBA East Mississippi Community College students, faculty and staff are in mourning today, after the death of basketball coach Steve Hull.
Hull died Monday afternoon of an apparent heart attack while playing golf at Dancing Rabbit Golf Club near Philadelphia. He was 39.
Hull attended Meridian public schools before graduating from Hickory High School. He went to Millsaps College, where he played basketball for four years before graduating in 1983.
This was his seventh year at EMCC and his 18th year in coaching.
Hull began his career at d'Iberville before going to Columbus to coach at New Hope High School. After umpiring professional baseball in Florida for a year, Hull returned to Mississippi as an assistant coach at Delta State University.
He coached boys' basketball at West Lauderdale High School, where he led the Knights to four consecutive 20-win seasons and two straight state runner-up finishes before becoming men's head coach at EMCC.
Hull's family lives on the Scooba campus. He and his wife, Lisa, have two children, Trex and Baleigh.
Funeral arrangements were incomplete this morning.
