    Fred Hill is in his second season on the Northwestern coaching staff, joining the squad in June of 2011.

    A 1981 graduate of Montclair State, Hill headed the Rutgers program for four years (2006-10) after serving one year as the associate head coach. During his time in New Jersey, he successfully recruited a pair of top-50 players, including Mike Rosario, the first McDonald's All-American in program history.

    Hill's squads made nine consecutive postseason appearances from 1998 through 2006 while he was a member of the coaching staffs at Fairleigh Dickinson, Seton Hall, Villanova and then Rutgers. As an assistant at Villanova, he was rated the No. 1 assistant coach in the nation by Basketball Times in 2004-05 and by Lindy's College Basketball magazine in 2002-03.

    Hill helped Villanova rise to prominence from 2001-05 as the Wildcats advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2005, the program's first NCAA tournament bid since 1999 and its first Sweet 16 since 1988. He was instrumental in attracting an elite recruiting class for 2002-03 that ranked in the top five nationally and included four top-50 recruits - Jason Fraser (No. 5), Curtis Sumpter (No. 25), Randy Foye (No. 32) and Allan Ray (No. 40).

    Hill helped bring in the top-ranked class in the nation while at Seton Hall, including Eddie Griffin who went on to be named the 2000-01 Big East Rookie of the Year.

    He has also served as an assistant coach at Maine (1988-91), Marquette (1986-88), Rider (1983-86), Lehigh (1982-83) and Montclair State (1981-82).
