Ian was a key position player who was usually played in defence. Originally from Brighton Technical School Old Boys he arrived at Richmond after playing as a full-forward in the amateurs. He was strongly built, a good mark and long left-foot kick.
He was a courageous player who possessed good skills and a shrewd football brain. He was a member of the 1940 Senior Grand Final side and best player in the 1939 Reserves’ Grand Final loss. He later served with the A.I.F in the Pacific Islands during the Second World War, serving in the ordnance unit as Lieutenant, and leading several Army teams.
He took discharge in Adelaide and joined Port Adelaide in 1947 until 1948 playing full-back
He then joined Horsham as playing-coach replacing former Richmond player Roy Quinn, and worked at the Wimmera Fresh Foods Company. On May 20, 1949, Hull resigned as playing-coach due to a foot injury he sustained in a preseason match. He continued for another month as coach until former Melbourne player Frank Hanna took up the playing-coach role in mid June.
