Fred Hill To Join NU's Staff

Posted Jun 4, 2011

According to multiple sources, Northwestern is set to hire former Rutgers coach Fred Hill as an assistant coach.

Hill will replace Mitch Henderson, who recently took the position of head coach at Princeton. Hill finished his four-year tenure at Rutgers with a 47-77 overall record. He is widely-known as a strong recruiter.

During a Rutgers baseball game, Hill was reportedly involved in a shouting match with Pittsburgh baseball coaches. Shortly after the incident, Hill resigned as head coach.

Prior to becoming head coach at Rutgers, Hill served as an assistant at Rutgers, Villanova, and Seton Hall. This will be Hill’s 10th job as an assistant coach.

Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune reported that Northwestern head coach Bill Carmody met with Hill last month.

This is the second coaching move for Northwestern in the past month. On May 12th, Northwestern announced that Tavaras Hardy was promoted to the position of associate head coach.

Hill is a graduate of Montclair State University, where he played guard on the basketball team. An official announcement of Hill’s hiring is expected to come on Monday.
