Ham has spent the past 12 years in Atlanta, working for Sony Electronics and Liveview. But his association with GSU athletics and possibly his “Eagle Eye” for success drew an interest from Athletics Director Tom Kleinlein. Ham is happy to be in a place he calls Home. He helped Georgia Southern win two National Titles and ended his career with more than 8,900 yards of total offense.
From 1987-1999 Ham excelled in the Canadian Football League with more than 40,000 passing yards and 8,000 rushing yards. In 1989 he was named Most Outstanding Player.
Ham briefly coached college football at Clark Atlanta from 2002-2003.
He’s also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.
