Fred Hill (Born March 26, 1959) is an assistant coach for the Seton Hall Pirates men's basketball team. He had previously served as the head men's basketball coach at Rutgers University. His father is Rutgers baseball coach Fred Hill Sr. and his uncle, Brian Hill is a former NBA coach.

Hill had a 47–77 record in four years at Rutgers. He recruited and lost 12 players including Mike Rosario, the first McDonald's All American in Rutgers history.

Despite a losing record, Hill had been told after the 2009–10 season that he would return for a fifth season. However, on April 1, Hill got into a shouting match with Pittsburgh baseball coaches after a game between the Panthers and Scarlet Knights. When athletic director Tim Pernetti learned about it, he ordered Hill to stay away from the remaining games of the Panthers-Scarlet Knights series. Hill showed up for the next day's game, prompting an investigation by Pernetti. After the investigation uncovered a pattern of shouting at members of opposing teams as well as allegedly accepting "guest swipes" from students into the school's Brower Dining Commons, on April 8, Pernetti told Hill he would not be allowed to return. After protracted negotiations, Hill was allowed to resign in return for an $850,000 settlement.[1]
