Coaching History[edit]

Wichita State[edit]

Hill was the 14th head college football coach for Fairmont College and the University of Wichita (now Wichita State University) located in Wichita, Kansas and he held that position for four seasons, from 1923 until 1924 and again from 1928 until 1929. Fairmount College became the Municipal University of Wichita in 1926. His overall coaching record at Fairmount & Wichita was 14 wins, 14 losses, and 5 ties. This ranks him ninth at Wichita State in terms of total wins and 14th at Wichita State in terms of winning percentage. [3]


Hill also served as the head football coach at Wesleyan University from 1925 to 1926, compiling a record of 5 wins and 10 losses at that institution.[4]
