Fred Hill enters his second year as an assistant on head coach Kevin Willard's staff at Seton Hall. Hill is in his second stint as an assistant coach for the Pirates where he helped bring in the top-ranked recruiting class in the nation to South Orange in 2000-01.

Hill was instrumental in guiding Seton Hall to the postseason in his three years (1998-2001) under head coach Tommy Amaker, which included a run to the Sweet 16 in 2000. He mentored three-time All-BIG EAST selection and the Pirates' current associate head coach Shaheen Holloway (1996-2000), two-time All-BIG EAST honoree Andre Barrett (2000-04), along with NBA veterans Eddie Griffin, the 2000-01 BIG EAST Rookie of the Year, and Samuel Dalembert (1999-2001).

With 30-years of coaching experience at the Division I level, he returned to South Orange after spending the two seasons at Northwestern University as an assistant on Bill Carmody's staff in the Big Ten. He previously served four years as head coach at Rutgers from 2006-10, promoted to the position after one year as associate head coach. While at Rutgers, Hill recruited a pair of top-50 players, including the first McDonald's All-American in program history (Mike Rosario).

Hill helped guide four different programs to nine consecutive postseason appearances from 1998-2006 as a member of the coaching staffs at Fairleigh Dickinson, Seton Hall, Villanova and Rutgers. He garnered national recognition as the No. 1 assistant coach in the country by Basketball Times (2004-05) and by Lindy's College Basketball magazine (2002-03) during his time as an assistant at Villanova.

Hill also helped Villanova return to prominence from 2001-05 as the Wildcats advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2005. It was the program's first NCAA tournament bid since 1999 and its first Sweet 16 since 1988. In 2002-03, Hill was instrumental in signing a premier recruiting class that ranked top five nationally, which featured four top-50 recruits - Jason Fraser (No. 5), Curtis Sumpter (No. 25), Randy Foye (No. 32) and Allan Ray (No. 40).

A 1981 graduate of Montclair State, Hill began his coaching career in 1981-82 at his alma mater. He also held assistant coaching positions at Maine (1988-91), Marquette (1986-88), Rider (1983-86) and Lehigh (1982-83).
