The 42-year-old Hull came to OSU from Holy Cross prior to the 2003 season. He coached several positions for the Crusaders from 1996-2002 after spending five years with high school programs in Massachusetts.
"I've resigned solely for family reasons," Hull said. "I have loved every minute at Oregon State. I appreciate everything Coach Riley and Oregon State has done for me. Coach Riley took a chance bringing me on staff from a Division I-AA program to a Pac-10 school. I owe a lot of my success and growth to him."
Hull began his career with the Beavers as the running backs coach for two seasons and helped current NFL All-Pro Steven Jackson earn All-American honors. He switched to receivers coach in 2005 and since coached All-Americans Mike Hass and Sammie Stroughter.
"Coach Hull did a terrific job and made a big impact for the Beavers," Riley said. "I certainly wish him well with his new opportunity. I completely understand his family's wishes to be closer to home."
Hull played professionally for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League from 1990-92, where he first became acquainted with Riley, who was the head coach during his rookie season.
Riley indicated he will fill the open position in the near future. Earlier this year, cornerbacks coach Nigel Burton resigned to become the defensive coordinator at Nevada. He was replaced by former four-year Beaver letterwinner Keith Heyward, who spent one year as an assistant at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo.
