Northwestern University today confirmed rumors that have been all over the news since the weekend: Fred Hill will be joining its men’s basketball coaching staff as assistant coach. Hill, a Verona native, replaces Mitch Henderson who was recently named the head coach at Princeton University.

“Fred’s coaching experience at a number of successful programs, coupled with his reputation as a top notch recruiter, should pay immediate dividends,” said head coach Bill Carmody in a statement. “I am thrilled he will be joining our staff.”

Hill, a 1981 graduate of Montclair State, stepped down as head basketball coach at Rutgers University in April 2010 after a four-year run. He had previously been on the coaching staffs at Fairleigh Dickinson, Seton Hall, and Villanova, where 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. 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).

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with and learn from Coach Carmody, who has one of the brightest offensive minds in the game,” said Hill, also in a statement. “Northwestern is an outstanding academic institution and Bill has this program headed in the right direction. I’m looking forward to being in the Big Ten and the great city of Chicago.”
